Google’s management team is dancing around its new KitKat statue today, having dodged what could have been a competitive bullet or two from Apple — possibly the new iWatch, iTV or even a new laptop. For heaven’s sake, they didn’t even announce a new iPad!
There was nothing new from Apple today that could stop Google’s market share march forward.
Another company that’s having a field day today: Nokia . Apple’s new iPhone 5C is seemingly a flawless copy of the Nokia 620 that has already been available for several months.
Oh, and the price of that Nokia 620 is approximately half that of the iPhone 5C.
Fingerprint sensor? You mean the same thing I got on my Dell laptop in 2007? And on the Motorola Atrix Android smartphone in January 2011? If Apple’s latest claim to fame is to having copied a Dell 2007 laptop and a January 2011 Motorola smartphone, then Apple is in trouble.
Which is why Google is celebrating today.
