got to at least give them some credit for being creative.
This is how I see it
iOS = Mac OS (The benchmark)
WebOS = BeOS (The underdog with some creative edge)
Android = Windows (well... you get the idea)
iPhone on Versizon is going to be a test. but Android's true test is windows phone 7.
Both iPhone and Android has their fan base, but what Android (and windows) phone makers are catering to are people who don't give a crap about which phone they get as long as it's dirt cheap and somewhat cool.
