PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, Google is growing increasingly concerned with Samsung's dominance of the Android - and smartphone - landscape. Supposedly, the topic is being openly discussed at Google, and as far as I'm concerned, that's great news.

Exactly my thoughts after reading the first paragraph. I, for one, have been considering switching to iPhone quite recently and I also keep my fingers crossed for Ubuntu. But I won't easily move away, as I have quite a bunch of applications already bought from the Play store and to buy them again on a different platform wouldn't be justifiable.

Meh, I don't know. Lets face it, the apps cost squat. People with just a little disposable income won't really notice. I don't think i would have any trouble switching platform. Problem is, I'm already on Android, and find the lack of a back button intolerable on iOS. I could easily switch to other platforms if they weren't a pain to deploy software to, and was seriously considering N9 but it was insanely overpriced and ditched before it was released.

I suspect my next phone could just run firefox, although then i'll need to keep an Android tablet for my gaming fixes.
