Real iPhone competition - Android
I love it. For one, Android is open-source (not that that means anything- OSX was once based on open source core), and overall, a pretty good experience. There is a lot of excitement. In Barcelona, at the World Mobile Congress, Google made an exciting announcement: Android OS equipped handsets are shipping in extraordinary numbers: 60 000 per day!
WinMo may go up to the chopping block; who knows, Microsoft may buy RIM. Android is an exciting alternative, but also one which Apple really have to worry about. If Google and partners can continue shipping such vast quantities of handsets, it will really, really be rough on Apple's de facto lead.
I don't welcome any new overlord this time, but look forward to Apple's necessary evolution to keep the market interested. The App Store is one, for sure, but the creatively stodgy Californian company will have to decide on a few hardware innovations to keep a spec-happy population happy.
