  1. Android’s image problem could mean success for Windows Phone

    The Java programming language (Oracle v Google) is subject to copyright. Predictably, Google disagrees. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that Google has been caught red-handed copying and pasting class libraries (which have been ruled to be subject to copyright) directly into Android and that is a potentially huge tipping point in this case. The problem at hand however is one of image, every bit as much as it is of legality. The evidence against Google is damning, to say the least, and right now courts are all-too-happy to help IP owners protect themselves.

    An interesting read about growing pains of Android and opportunities it presents to other competitors. I don't think Google's Play store can match Apple's apptsore when it comes to monetary returns for developers, and that alone could be detrimental in the longer run.
