Two Android ‘developer advocates’ weigh in on the year’s most closely watched horse race
A pair of veteran high-tech luminaries, both hired by Google (GOOG) within the past 14 months, chose this week to write on their private blogs about how they see the Apple (AAPL) vs. Android competition shaping up in 2011.
What’s interesting is that they disagree.
Former Microsoft (MSFT) start-up evangelist Don Dodge, who posted his predictions Monday, neatly summarizes the conventional wisdom. In the horse race between Android and iPhone, he writes, “Both will win because they are playing different games. Android will win the market share battle, but Apple will generate bigger profits.”
