Thanks to the BBC for allowing me to reproduce it as a podcast.

  • “That’s what happened when fools bought into Google’s foray into the cellphone world with their fancy Nexus One phone … So people went out and bought it and yay! less than a year later Google closes down the online store … a few weeks after that, said that it’s not making any more phones.”

    So, what’s wrong with that? Did Eric Schmidt forbid me using my lovely Nexus One? No. Is it going to magically disappear? No. Did Google’s strategy of making a big hit which triggers substantial rise in Android phone specs fail? No, it succeed (Incredible and Evo from HTC, Samsung Galaxy S, Motorola Droid X and Droid 2, and many-many coming.)
