Now on the Apple Store: A Dell XPS with OS X

Can you imagine an Apple exec, taking the stage at a main Apple event, promoting a Dell computer that has been optimized for running OS X, and sold exclusively through Apple’s own store? Well, that’s basically what Google did yesterday at Google I/O by announcing they were to sell an unlocked, no-contract Samsung Galaxy S4 running the stock Android OS and sold through Google’s Play store, for $649.

Why did Google buy Motorola for $12.5 billion? And what a slap in the face to all the other Android hardware companies.

The Android ecosystem is truly amazing. And mind boggling.
