PACMan3000 argues (on Flickr, strangely enough) that when you think about the iPhone, you also need to consider the other iPhone, the iPod Touch; a product that has and will continue to sell millions and millions of units to people who don’t want to sign up for an expensive cell phone+data plan.

To kill the iPhone, you must also kill the iPod Touch, iTunes, the App Store and any other product that Apple puts out with the same OS, like the 10 inch Tablet device that may or may not come out next year.

Saul Hansell reporting in the NYTimes:

More cellphone makers are turning to the free Android operating system made by Microsoft’s latest nemesis, Google.

This move by Google is straight out of the Microsoft playbook. If you can’t compete on price, give away your product for free. Exactly what Microsoft does in developing countries where their biggest competitor is piracy.
