There was no beer on my side of the chatter - just a bagle with sesame and some tehini to go with it :-) I think Android will be first. BB 10 should be there before Android, because they have more to lose - so does Windows 8, but both will come later. Android will probably do Chrome first and then the native browser that comes with a phone, with a gap of 6-9 months between them - due to the release vehicle available to Android (new Android version with a new phone introduced to the market).

Dan, It is only a matter of time until Android as an operating system beats iOS. That said, I don't think it is relevant to Apple - or at least not too much. They have always been about getting a smaller share of the customers but a larger cut of the revenue. Android will win by the amount of choice it provides - number of phones and handset vendors, number of carriers, flexibility to customize almost everything on the devices, etc. Apple will win through superior designs with each release of their iPhone. Both things will happen at the same time. Tsahi
Andy, how would you say this affects all of the mobile VoIP predictions? My own assumption is that mobile VoIP is somewhat dependent on LTE adoption, where the IP network of cellular operators will be up for the task. Tsahi

To me this simply means that the incumbents are going to make other VoIP players redundant on their networks - they will have the capability (and this time the incentive) to offer their own solutions in ways that will be better than what Mobile VoIP players today can offer. It's why I think the One Voice initiative might actually succeed.

Andy, While true, I do believe that such companies have only one strategy - be bought and used by a carrier directly. Any other solution won't work as IMS will kill them eventually.

Andy, It's a great initiative, though I have 3 minor problems with it: 1. I am more of a text guy. Easier to skim through, so for me committing to hear a podcast is higher than just subscribing and reading your posts. 2. There is no indication on the length of the show... 3. I can't play the podcast from Google Reader directly - other services enable that. That said - liked the content!

While I agree with what you are saying, it does seem a bit ironic: we use cloud computing, which intends to offload work from our terminals and allow them to become dumb, only to end up with devices that are smarter.

Andy, Video calling probably won't be as common as voice calls are today for a long time - no matter what Skype decides to do. There are other barriers to this technology - from the need of peripherals, to increased bandwidth and the need for users to get used to the video part of the conversation. And I am an avid supporter of video and use it daily. As for Skype adopting SIP - that might not be their end-game move. I've written on a similarly regarding twitter and open source: As Skype has the largest user base, why the hell do they need to care about SIP? Tsahi
