Two news draw my attention in last couple of days :-
1. Carier billing for google Play
2. Google's nexus strategic move- launching pure android experience with multiple vendors

What is so great! We had seen how Mr. G had disrupted content market, and even given run for their money to Mr. T as well. How Mr. G tried to make so called democratic market place. Now with this background when we combine above two news item. It will start making more sense.

One as of now Mr. G is trying to make peace with Mr. T. Red ocean to blue ocean strategy...
Another trying to bring more homoginization in terms of android experience with every upgrades.

This will try to reduce current concern of monitizing content other than advertisement revenue. These two develompment will put Mr. G in driver's seat in long run. Till the time user habit changes, content can be monitized with billing convenience offered by Mr. T. Ensuring developer community remain engaged with clear cut revenue stream from developing aps/games for android platform.

By ensuring more synch between all OS release, again helping aam zanata (developer community to focus more on content rather than worrying about compatibility) But this may make handset brand redundant?! its iOS or its Android or Mango.. (is this some history lesson for mobile manufacturer-especially Samsung who became number one recently.. remember IBM vs. Microsoft..)

Anyway, in recent fututre there is minimum harm to public in general as long as Mr. G is driuving the show and slowly minimzing role of any other organization. But will it remain democratic once significant manipulative power concentrate in single hand or will it become window dressing of democratic market place.

This compromises from Mr. G, may be next level of disruption. But this give one fantastic opportunity for great ap developer to find some partner who have both brick and mortar model, have distribution and billing, collection network. A partner who has off and on presence both.
There is market for great, serious aps developer who does not want to serve any free lunch, shall also explore this option.

Let us discuss it further some time in detail..
