Motorola is thinking of building an OS and abandoning Android. Several other vendors are considering similar moves, and HP was the first to act on this problem when it bought Palm to avoid Android.
The complaints come down to Google being unpredictable, unavailable, unresponsive, with the biggest complaint being that the related efforts aren’t profitable for anyone but Google.the application developers with one exception are saying they are losing money with Google, but not with Apple. Google’s soon to be ex-CEO Eric Schmidt seemed incredibly pleased that his Android group was profitable, but given this information, this is false profit. Google appears to be starving Android into obsolescence.
Steve Jobs is known to be frugal, and he is a true pain to negotiate with, but Apple outspends the industry on marketing, and he not only goes after the best people, he makes sure they have the resources they need to get the job done. Frugal is not cheap, and Apple launches for critical products are well-staged, the audiences are stacked, products well-seeded, and the seeding programs well supported.they did with Apple TV, you see a sharp difference, and the product doesn’t do as well.
If Android loses, it won’t be because of Apple, it will be because Google starved it to death, Apple will just be the biggest beneficiary
