| So we get to wonder: why won’t the Linux-based Android OS attract as many 
| consumers as the Ubuntu-EEE operating system on ASUS does? Rogers added that 
| Google will lead the deals for the release of computer OEMs for Chrome. In 
| addition, he said that Chrome will experience some little problems with 
| a "significant chunk of the browser market."

| Rich Miner even went after Apple's handheld darling.  "Once you have devices 
| out there from Motorola, HTC, Samsung, and so on, there's a much larger 
| potential market on Android than for the iPhone," he said.  "[T]here's a 
| single manufacturer, it's targeted at a particular demographic, and it falls 
| far short of the 1 billion mobile phones sold every year worldwide."

| Ballmer: Open...Linux. I don't want to say open source. Linux, certainly have 
| to go with that.

| On the flip side, Good Android (here’s a video demo) is a cross-platform 
| software environment that multiple hardware vendors and service providers are 
| expected to embrace. Although Android isn’t fully baked, Google is 
| aggressively promoting the operating environment to third party developers. 
| The idea is to get developers on board early, so that tons of Android 
| applications are ready when Android-compatible devices finally debut.

| Eventually, The VAR Guy suspects, Android devices will easily leapfrog 
| iPhone’s market share. But that’s not a terrible thing for Apple. Although 
| Apple nearly died on the desktop, Apple’s more recent innovations prove that 
| you can thrive even when you hold less than 10 percent of a technology 
| market.
