Andy Rubin, the creator, and co-founder of Android made what I was waiting for; a "white box" phone for Android. If the new team at Google writing Android P is optimizing it for Google's Pixel line of phones and going to leave other faithful manufacturers of Android phones floundering, that is going to spell trouble. Lt's just hope this is just a sign of it being in beta form and not a direction that will fragment the industry.
Android phones outsell Apple phones 3 to 1. Let's hope the Android team at Google doesn't get short-sighted trying to make more money off of a new version of Android and their line of phones to the detriment of all the various phone alliances that have been made over the last 15+ years.
