Good piece by Jay Yarow at Business Insider laying out the case against Android. But I disagree with the headline. It’s not that Android is suddenly in a lot of trouble — it’s that a lot of people are suddenly realizing that Android has been in trouble all along. Nothing here is new. The fragmentation, the lack of traction on any devices other than cell phones, the tension between handset makers and Google — these problems have been around from the get-go. The only thing that’s actually news is Verizon’s signaling that it plans to make a push behind Windows Phone.
