Incredibly, despite the mobile device industry experiencing a complete revolution during the past four years, the Android of today is still precisely the operating system Miner described to me in 2008. It has a solid foundation, it can run on a plethora of hardware, it is fully customizable, and the carriers and manufacturers have attempted to differentiate it at the user interface level. It is astonishing to me that Google has held fast to the original vision for the platform considering the poor quality of most Android phones and, far more importantly, most of the apps.

Nothing in Android Makes Sense Except in the Light of Its Original Vision
