I wouldn't say that Android is king. But they are 1 half of the Twin Terrors. I don't think this will take significant market share from Google immediately. And with the fact that it's going to be for small user base for at least the next few years. Google will not allow them to use any of their services. Hacks will come maybe but not official software. And not gain traction until they can come up with a workaround

Hopefully this succeeds. Android must not become too powerful. Apple tactics all over again.

To be honest i ahve seen the hands on test of firefox OS and it looks plain boring. Good luck to it but i also have a question. If it is based solely on the web then what happens to an area where you cant get signal??

I've seen the demo video of the OS... it's painfully slow. It couldn't be the low specs of the demo phones because WP runs smoothly on the same low specs. I pity the people in emerging markets who would unknowingly buy one of these phones.
