Dudes, this isn't about Apple vs. Google. What this does, though, is keep Microsoft and Blackberry out of the game (especially in light of new iPhone and iOS, coming later this year).
Yes, it will get iPhone users to be a little jealous but it also will get people like +Michael Gaines
to attack Android. I could do the same, there's still a LOT wrong with Android when compared to iOS. My Android phone, yesterday, couldn't make a call until I rebooted it. My iPhone never "bit" me like that. But, while it'll be fun to have "fights" between all the Google and Apple fanboys and girls you'll be missing the bigger picture, which is that tonight's announcement really will refocus the world on Google and Apple. This thread even proves that point.
That said, I was Apple's #1 fan (quite literally, I was first in line in the Palo Alto Store, which is where Steve Jobs visited, for both the original iPhone and original iPad). I'm no longer an Apple fanboy and the MotoX is yet another reason why. More tonight.
