Well said.

Google has a lot on their plate. Doing hardware isn't something they're looking to get into quite yet.
Latin? Oh god

Re: What if Google bought HTC? Could Kill WinMo 7

I don't think this would kill WM7. *If* google did this, you would most likely see the other manufacturers (Samsung, Sony, Motorola, LG) move away from Android, and make more phones running WM (Samsung is now pushing BADA).

This could work out for Google, as well. They would only have one hardware mfgr making their phones, which would mean google would not need to support as many hardware profiles. Plus, if they want to go straight for the Apple jugular, they may be able to focus their sites only dealing with one hardware mfgr.

Would it make sense to do this? Maybe/maybe not. With Google's primary goal to drive revenue through advertisements, I think they'd want to display these ads on any and every platform imaginable. Also, I don't know if HTC is wanting to be purchased. They seem to be doing just fine on their own.

I'll also say this, I now have an Android device and like it much better than WinMo. In fact, I've given my HTC Touch Pro 2 to my girlfriend and am now using the Samsung Moment. I didn't pick the HTC Hero because it doesn't have a slide out keyboard... once you go slide out qwerty keyboard you'll never go back!
I know that's right.
