During the last few days, announcements about new mobile products have been pouring out. Nokia/Microsoft, Motorola/Google, and Amazon have all had shows of upcoming phones and/or tablets. (Apple is next week.) After attending the Nokia/Microsoft and then the Motorola/Google shindigs, Dan Rowinski of ReadWriteWeb comments, “The battle for mobile supremacy has turned nasty.” He then writes:
The showmanship of the mobile industry, the sniping between companies, the big announcements that fail to live up to the hype, big names dropped to impress the crowd and all the rest show an industry that has allowed competition to turn it into a caricature of itself.
