• Apple to buy Android from Google in 50B deal? Development to stop immediately?

    My sources are telling me that Google is going to shock the industry by announcing that they are selling Android to Apple in 50 Billion dollar deal.

    Apple will immediately be closing Android's source code. Some rumors point to Apple stopping all future development of Android immediately but there are also some rumblings that they will be porting Android to a special version of the iPhone 4 for developing countries.

    iPhone users will no longer get lost as Google Maps, Chrome and other Google services will become the default programs on their iPhones.

    The Nexus program is also dead. Customers who have ordered a Nexus 6 will be getting pink 8GB iPhone 5c's instead and a $50 iTunes gift card.

    Android isn't dead though, prominent Android OEM's have already discussed plans on forking the existing code.

    Samsung has already started working on their Android fork S-Wiz while Huawei's will be called HuaweiPop.

    More details on this as they emerge.

    But long term the $50 1 yr...

    Until you get there to test out the phones, hard to say what towers/channels you will be connecting to.
