From Gene Steinberg’s The Tech Night Owl a look at how Android’s winning isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
In terms of generating income, recent assessments I’ve seen, which I have no reason to dispute, claim that Microsoft earns more money from Android than Google due to patent licensing payments. Worse, the only handset maker outside of Apple to earn decent profits is Samsung, and it’s not that Samsung is showing Android the love.
Android doesn’t have a money trail. No money means a slow strangulation. Is Android the next Google Reader?
