Multitasking, Flash enabled, tethering, two cameras and more. Sure looks interesting!
I suspect we are going to see the same shakeout. This time it will be Google as the number 1, Apple happily in number 2 with those who love their top notch user experience, and MS, HP, RIM, and the rest vying for the remainder of the market.
actually, more recently, they have denied dropping those plans. The last thing I saw, they were still planning a WebOS consumer-oriented tablet and a Windows 7 Enterprise/business-oriented tablet.
Actually for many people the big benefit to Android is the fact that there are numerous vendors and lots of choices.
The situation is almost exactly the same as the OS desktop wars of the 80's and 90's. Apple is once again playing the part of their OS on their hardware with limited, but quality choices.
I don't believe it will. HTC Sense and stock Android UI are becoming the defacto standard. Most of the cheap devices rely on the stock interface which is quite good. Sense is also very good.One potential problem for Android systems is the need for companies to differentiate themselves will cause them to develop proprietary features that will hurt the evolution of the OS. I'm not familiar with the android phones but I use the Windows mobile as a model. What initially was a very powerful OS became hampered by trying to spread it's use over various hardware platforms that it became very generic. Your going to have a lot of misses before there becomes some stability. Hopefully, the platform doesn't get ruined in the process. (I.e. UMPC etc)
