According to an exclusive special report now available from TelecomWeb, Google’s recently announced “Android” is “just another mobile Linux,” rather than any real technical innovation: i.e., no more than a convenient way for the company to pursue its real goal - to create an advertising delivery system it can control rather than innovating in telecommunications.
