Android lock in

A few weeks ago I blogged about an ars technica article which looked at Google’s increasing control over the Android ecosystem (“Android “open for embedded”? Must-read Ars Technica article”).

Yesterday, Vision Mobile published a related post “The Naked Android” which keenly describes the role of Google Play Services and how Google is driving towards its Android endgame of “flatten, expand, mine”. 

More food for thought if you’re considering Android for embedded.
