The End of Android

Dan Frommer, whose website has recently been redesigned:

But even from the outside, it’s easy to see that the Android situation isn’t ideal. Yes, it is the world’s “most popular” mobile phone platform, if you sort by the number of people using it, and that’s an impressive achievement. But it certainly isn’t making the sort of impact — on the world and on Google itself — that it perhaps could or should.

Convincing arguments. The Android platform may be the world’s most popular in terms of market share, but it is not healthy, and it cannot continue the way it is.
