Steve Jobs Rewriting Android History?
Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin are saying that Steve Jobs is rewriting the history of Android to suit Apple’s interests and the iPhone’s market. Jobs claims that Google developed Android after the release of the iPhone to compete with iOS. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth.
Android was founded all the way back in 2003 by Andy Rubin, Nick Sears, Chris White, and Richard Miner. In 2005, Google saw potential in Android, so they bought it. Two years later, the Open Handset Alliance (OHA) was formed and Android was publicly introduced. In 2008, as we all know, the G1 was released and the rest, as they say, is history.
Steve, we get that you’re trying to boost the iPhone and its market share, but please, next time at least get your facts straight. You say that “We (Apple) didn’t enter the mobile advertising business. They (Google) entered the mobile phone business.” Actually Steve, Google entered the mobile phone business when they bought Android, a full 2 years before the iPhone was introduced. You entered the mobile phone business after Google. You fail, Steve.
“Google is trying to kill the iPhone. We won’t let them!” Jobs says. You say we’re trying to kill the iPhone. I say we’re succeeding.
