While Google may not own the OS
Au contraire IncrediBill - they *do* own the OS as you mentioned and I backed up with numbers in a recent thread on January 1 -http://www.webmasterworld.com/msft/4531296.htm [webmasterworld.com].
Android is now the leading OS in the world and the fastest growing. Sure, not on the desktop, but who cares about the desktop anymore?
If every Android-based web-enabled device from Android phones to the Kindle Fire tablets upgraded to an Android distro with WebP rolled in, that would cover over 42% of all brwosing devices right now and that proportion is growing.
