Imagine, Microsoft making a phone powered by Google.
I don’t know what he did last year, but it was apparently worth $106 million.
Insane, but makes sense. Motorola started out as a $12.5 billion burden for Google. And that burden only got heavier over time. Revenues shrank and shrank and shrank.
No wonder why Microsoft has gone so negative on Chromebooks.
HTC made an epic infographic explaining why Android updates are so terrible.
How long before Google’s market cap passes Apple’s?
Motorola is just kind of burning cash, huh?
Reminder that Google spent $12.5 billion on Motorola.
Android 4.3 (launched July 2013) is on fewer than 0.1% of Android devices. Android 4.2 (launched October 2012) is on 8.5% of devices.
iOS 7 (launched yesterday) is already on 26% of devices.
Alleged Google exec love triangles aside, this is a very interesting move for Hugo Barra.
Gingerbread is shrinking, but I suspect that’s only because people are buying new phones with Ice Cream Sandwich or Jelly Bean. Still, even those phones probably won’t receive timely updates. Or any updates at all.
The HTC One Google Edition.
I love that Google is doing this, but no one will buy it. $599 is a lot of dough for most people.
Very, very nice.
Source says reports of poor HTC First sales are “sadly, very right.”
