&8226; Steve Ballmer hadn&8217;t said that Apple had &8220;sold more iPads than he would have liked and that &8220;Microsoft-powered tablets are &8216;job one&8217; urgency.&8221; &8226; We didn&8217;t know that Google could remote uninstall applications from any Android phone using a &8220;kill switch.&8221; &8226; The UAE had not turned off BlackBerry Enterprise Services within the country. &8226; Motorola was looking very sick indeed, but is now looking much healthier thanks to the Droid and Droid X. &8226; MeeGo had not been announced (and as of the time of writing is not substantial enough to include in this book). My prediction, for what it&8217;s worth, is that this will get traction in spaces like automotive as opposed to slate or phone factors. &8226; Microsoft announced, launched, and killed a device called &8220;Kin.&8221; To give you some idea of how much money is being thrown around, Microsoft attributes US $240 million of writt- off monies to Kin. That&8217;s not small change. In fact, this book has been difficult to write because of the velocity of all of this change. I&8217;ll be forever grateful to the team at Apress for managing to corral it into the place where, I hope, it&8217;s helpful and relevant to you, in spite of this almost constant upheaval in the market.
