Google Android will prevail over Apple's iPhone and RIM's BlackBerry

An interview by the New York Times with Google’s Andy Rubin on the topic of Android revealed that the coming Android 2.2 will come with full support of Adobe Flash. This is after Adobe decided to ditch Flash for the iPhone and concentrate on Android. Rubin predictably said that the Android platform was taking off because it was open to many manufacturers running many different architectures. He also predicted the sales of Android phones to exceed the sales of proprietary systems like Apple’s iPhone and RIM’s BlackBerry, and of which I concur with.

Yesterday, mobile ad network AdMob, published a mobile metrics report for the month of March in U.S. showing Android web traffic exceeds all other smartphones, including Apple's iPhone. The potential for Google Android to be the dominant force in smartphone is real, especially with its openess concept. Photoshop is now available on Android, Android is able to run on Apple's iPhone, and now full Flash support on Android, what else can stop Google's Android from dominating?

At the end of the New York Times' interview, the interviewer joked with Rubin that his press relations colleague, who was in the room, wanted to confess that he had left a prototype Android phone at a local bar. Mr Rubin's reply was as such
I’d be happy if that happened and someone wrote about it,” Mr. Rubin said. “With openness comes less secrets.
I wonder what will happen or had happened to the poor guy who lost Apple's iPhone 4.0 prototype phone in a pub weeks ago.
