Around the Network

In 2 years, it'll be a two-OS ecosystem between Android and iOS. Both are still eating up RIM and Microsoft's small share of the pie. Likely, it'll be somewhere in the area of a 65/35 split between Android and iOS... Which is very favorable for iOS.



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.

I can't believe there are 110 people in the U.S. with smart phones now. It won't be long before it gets to 111.
