Interesting perspective. I was more interested in the Bluetooth LE analysis.

Interesting read.

Not sure I'm convinced that local comms apps like EFTPOS are going to drive the market very hard the near term. Such things require buy-in from both sides. Service providers can't ignore customers with incompatible Android phones and those same Android users who don't feel the need to rush out and get a hardware refresh every 6 months seem unlikely to be convinced to buy a new phone for what will be unusual use-cases for a while yet.

Interesting... but a lot of rumours... and who is Steve Cheney and why should I care what he blogs about?

Quite illogically pro-apple in many parts IMHO. For example "Integrated HW/SW from Apple will likely retain a performance edge". I have both Apple and Android hardware but consistently certain Android(mainly Samsung & Google) devices have had the performance edge for quite a long time now with no sign of Apple getting even close.
