Google’s Android will become the preeminent platform for developers over the next 12 months, edging ahead of Apple’s iOS, according to a study by research firm Ovum. Nearly all developers, however, will support both platforms.

What have these people been smoking? Probably the same stuff that Eric Schmidt has. The principle of “if you repeat something long enough, it eventually comes true” does not apply here, no matter how much various “analysts” try to convince us otherwise. The Android market is plagued with malware and poor apps and has a long way to go before it gains the trust and support of developers.
