Kiruba Shankar, in this weekly column in Financial Express, writes about Google Android vs iPhone…
The first time I heard that Google was coming out with a phone, I thought it was a well laid-out prank. After all, Google is notorious for fooling people. Very soon, many reliable news outlets on the Web started to talk about it and the first pictures confirmed that it indeed was real.
I had the first real look at the phone during TED Active in February 2010 when Google decided to give a free phone to every participant. Not to mention, I was overjoyed. This was my first real smartphone. I owned a Nokia N82 and a Blackberry, but I really won’t put them in the smartphone category.
