Google's Android delayed – too late to compete with iPhone?

Undoubtedly, Google sits on the top of search engine business, but, it is now experiencing delays in launch of it’s mobile OS, Android.

“This is where the pain happens,” Andy Rubin, Google’s director of mobile platforms. “We are very, very close.” He was talking about adding features etc requested by carrier partners. I think this is why Jobs was smart in being tyrannical and ignoring carrier requests when it came to software. Google apparently can’t afford to ignore partner requests.

Reports reveal that the OS will be launched in Q4, 2008. I wish I could hear the loud laugh from the Apple’s Steve Jobs! :D

Is the Google Android a little too late to compete with the Jesus phone aka iPhone? :P

Funny Microsoft blooper

I was doing some surfing on my EEE and found this advertisement by Microsoft. Just when I saw this advertisement, something immediately struck my mind that something is looking odd :roll:

The picture shows an HTC S620 running live search. As most of the windows mobile users know that this is a Windows Mobile standard device, which are non-touch screen devices. The screenshot is from a touch screen device(start menu is on top-left). :!:

Thankfully, the target site features a Touch NOT running windows mobile standard version of windows live 8-)
