I have seen the Android brand disappear over time. First, it was the Nexus, then Samsung came with the Galaxy brand, who made Android less relevant. Now, Android is just invisible.
I thought Google was losing a war against its partners, but I finally concluded that it cannot be just a coincidence. It is not just a trend. It is a deliberate effort. By Google.
Of course Android as a mobile operating system is far from dead. The latest figures show that it has strong foothold over about half of all smartphones. But is Android, as a brand, dead? The above author makes a good point in that every day, it’s less about phones being “Android,” and more about them being a “Galaxy” or a “Nexus.”
