As many of you probably have heard, there are multiple lawsuits being filed against manufacturers of Android devices regarding patent infringements. Some of these are being directed to Google themselves but the majority of them are being targeted at the device manufacturers. So I have the ask... What's the future of Android? Is it going to survive? I personally can't stand the idea of the smartphone market being dominated by that "self-appointed god of technology" named Steve Jobs. I can't stand the idea that Apple would be the only player left in the smartphone market making us use devices that are so locked down simply because Steve Jobs thinks that he can do no wrong. I came from the iPhone platform to Android and the very thought of having to be forced back to that platform sickens me. I don't want Apple; I don't like their computers, I don't like their phone, and I certainly don't like their heavy-handed approach to their business.
