Some vendors even begin to rethink their strategy and allegedly Android be interested to switch back to the OS made by Microsoft.
According to Philip Elmer-DeWitt of Fortune blog, a patent infringement lawsuit by Apple against the vendor HTC has made it a little bit scared, so encourage them to rethink their focus to Android. HTC somehow not a big company and classmate Microsoft, Nokia and Samsung are able to spend big money to fight the lawsuit against them.
If we are quoting analysis from Oppenheimer's Yair Reiner is revealed in Tuesday note to clients yesterday, according to "industry checks," he explained that Apple has warned mobile phone vendors about the possibility of patent infringement of their technology.
Since January this year, Apple has held a series of C-level discussions with mobile phone vendors to tier-1 underlines that Apple was not happy to see the iPhone phenomena-IP violations related to intellectual property that was developed at the moment.
Since the discussion is developing everywhere, Reiner noted, Apple's lawsuit against HTC's to show that this is business. As a result, this will make the mobile vendors "will come back thinking about the direction of their business strategy to the front." Apple Operations Chief Timothy Cook in a conference call with analysts month in January 2009 said that his company would use all means necessary to protect their patented technologies, as well as mention the 358-yard patents related to the iPhone.
This statement has been interpreted at the time as a warning shot for the Palm that time about the presence of mobile advertising that has supported Pre multitouch.
Most phone vendors that use multitouch technology in the phone finally avoid the sales in the United States. For example, although Google enable multitouch features through firmware updates on some Android handsets sold in selected foreign countries, including the Nexus One, but the search engine giant has not been enabled for devices sold in the domestic (United States).
Google CEO Eric Schmidt himself said that when he was still sitting in the chair the board of Apple, Android does not support multitouch "the request of Apple".
When Motorola and HTC Droid Droid Eris finally armed with multitouch, Reiner writes, the other phone vendors prefer to "wait" response from Apple before deciding to produce phones that support multitouch.
As a result of Apple's lawsuit against HTC, a mobile phone vendors expected to reconsider the latest Microsoft OS, Windows Phone 7, as a safe replacement for the Google Android platform, as Microsoft has been estimated to have their own multitouch technology before it was patented by the iPhone.
Apple itself is known to have held the thick book of 358 pages contains a patent for the iPhone that includes every single bit of the iPhone user interface, including the implementation of the multitouch and gesture technology.
Although cases of patent infringement by Apple that HTC has not reached the courts and maybe it will take many years before the outcome was finally achieved, but the steps that Apple has produced the desired results.

At first I was a little bit "hm hm" but now it looks cool. But really I propose we should focus on X10 and Android talk, I think we had enough talk on Wave. We can mention it sometimes in comparison etc. but this is Xperia X10 talk, not samsung wave talk as people mentioned before so if we don't wan't to ge crucificed we better shut up ;-)

I also do not know what's going on do samsung with so many useless applications
Let us wait and see

I also expect android to be better as I used to be proud of
and one more recent information from me and of course from the trusted information
Snapdragon processor versus samsung
Simply Hummingbird is dedicated GPU while Snapdragon does not exist, so for the same speed, but for multimedia, UI and gaming, can Hummingbird 4x better. The principle is similar to a PC using onboard VGA compared to the use VGA GeForce or ATI Radeon own. Snapdragon wearing course will take some RAM memory for sharing when there is intensive use of graphics. But even so, still not be able to match the performance of the GPU itself. Snapdragon with the GPU is still in the stage of manufacture, probably towards the end of the year is available in the market.
samsung 4x better than Snapdragon at least until the end of this year

The similarity is in linux/windows comarision. Why are so many apps for windows but linux is clearly better? Because wast majority of windows users do not understand and do not need to understand how coputers work and what can you do with it. So at the end you have pure capitalism and everybody turns where the golden chicken is, nothin else...The most selling phone is iphone so there you go, developers are orienting on that because its the widest market. If the number of android devices would be greater and brought more profit, surely the expansion of apps would be rapid. It's all about the money...

I think not. For now I think its better to go with Andorid, its established and there are many apps. As for Bada lets wait and see expansion of it...and also the important final product reviews :)

Jean, 22 Mar 2010One of the main features of X10 that people barely speaks of is timescape/mediascape. That's w... moreAgree, timescape/mediascape is great and SE devoted a lot of time to develop it.And that is why the X10 has 1.6 andorid because they had to froze it and start developing timescape/mediascape. While they were developing it, andorid was upgraded. So they(SE) are porting now to android 2.1 and porting timescape and mediascape to 2.1. But when they release it, Android 3.0 will be here. And I think they will stop there and do not port again to 3.0. That's my opinion. Also I think that the great solution and a very nice move would be allowing users to have a TimeMediaUI with andorid 1.6/2.1 and also allowing to have a more recent version of Andorid(3.0 in few months) without TimeMediaUI. In that way user can choose to have TimeMediaUI experience or have a recent version of Andorid because I really doubt they will port TimeMediaUI as the new Android versions come out. It simply because its easier and much quicker to adapt new version of Andorid to i.g. X10 than adapting new version of android and porting TimeMediaUI to it.

The main advantage for Android that has the largest number of free apps than any other moblie apps market. As for Bada, if the number of free apps is gonna be low or very little then I think they will lose wide number of users. There will be some but not as many as Android ones...
Jean, 22 Mar 2010Having an app store with 50k(yeah, it has reached 50k) apps having 50% of it's apps duplicated... morereally was true. because android was present from the beginning.
while bada not attend until this day
but bada will try to add useful applications, although of course paid
compared with free android applications only for the low rating
and bada in support of very large companies like Capcom, Konami, chelsea
