- Quick rundown of goings-on from Kev &/or Bill
- Samsung & Google Cross-license patent portfolio for 10 years - Generally seen as opening the door to better relations between the two organizations, it may lead to a more Nexus-like experience on Samsung phones, which is good for Google, but may not be good for anyone who competes with Google and has been showcased on Samsung devices.
- Motorola sold by Google to Lenovo for $2.91B - Google sold its handset maker to Lenovo for a mix of stocks and cash, while retaining the majority of Motorola's patent library (Lenovo receives a full license to it). Lots of mixed opinions on whether it was a good deal or not, but Lenovo now has access to a market it hasn't really had success in (the US), and Google gets a considerable patent library for around $4B after all is said and done.
- Google Releases Casting SDK - Google has released its Cast SDK to developers, allowing for better Chromecast support in apps and websites in Android, iOS, and Chrome. This is the continuation of what's expected to be a push for adoption in 2014 following the release of more content providers in late 2013 and last week's announcement of financial results that painted a rosy picture for Chromecast and Play.
- HP is Shipping an Android-based Tablet PC Aimed at Small Businesses Interesting variation for enterprise deployments and limited needs small business computing. Seems to be a sign that HP is trying to get out from under the thumb of Microsoft and is an interesting symptom of OS fragmentation. Will be interesting to see if this takes off.
- UCWeb Browser launched three versions for Android Tackling specific versions for specific form factors and data infrastructure limitations.
- Firefox in top 10 Most trusted brands in Germany! ...but Google is two spots ahead?! One of our Android strongholds.
- Windows Phone potentially popular in Indonesia, Brazil, and Kenya as a smartphone OS. Shows how some large emerging markets may not follow the "mobile OS wars are over" narrative. "Windows Phone has seen particularly strong growth in India; in Q2 of last year it was the second most popular operating system among smartphones sold in India for the third straight quarter and saw a 156% growth in YOY sales in Q3."
- Nothing to report today, we are going to be closely watching release this week and reporting if anything breaks.
Quick roadmap review
- Changes, additions, significant features that may need to be shifted?
