Android will fail like Windows Mobile

Another thoughtful piece by Daniel Eran Dilger at Roughly Drafted on why Android will largely fail like Windows Mobile has.
Look at the problems in Windows Mobile and you’ll see a lot of the problems intrinsic to Android as a platform. Now consider that iPhone developers aren’t abandoning the iPhone for Windows Mobile due to Microsoft’s lack of restrictions relative to Apple, despite Windows Mobile currently having a larger installed base and, at least until recently, greater worldwide market share than Apple among smartphones.
