After reading Mobile Crunch’s review of the Motorolla Droid device vs the iPhone, it finally seems like someone was able to catch up with Apple(feature wise).

Each phone platform has such tremendous merits. Androids got better navigation; the iPhone has a better browser. Androids got unbeatable expandability and flexibility; the iPhone OS is mind-numbingly easy to use and the rate of growth and drive behind the App Store is simply explosive.

Samsung is also making Android powered phones and we will soon see more Hardware makers jumping on the Android bandwagon.
I wrote before here
and here how it would be awesome to have a Sony phone with an open operating system platform like Android. It finally seems like that its viable for Sony to compete with a unique value offering. Now that Sony has adopted the “It only does everything” line for the PS3, they should do the same with the PSP. A powerful handheld console like the PSP coupled with a smart phone functionality would be something I would buy in a heart beat.
