Differences in 'Open'

Stephen Fry

Google and some of the smaller Android OEMs might well sleep uneasily in their beds… Word is Samsung already have a prototype OS well into development.

This is why Google's 'open' approach in mobile and Microsoft's 'open' approach in computing are completely different. Microsoft never had to worry about this.

But I'd wager Google would still count these things as Android 'activations'.
