Is Google Android Being Neglected? [pcworld.com]
What happened to you, Google? It has been nearly seven months since your last major Android announcement, and some of us in the community are worried that Android will go the way of Google Wave: You might stop work on the platform, and leave development to any interested parties. Your own CEO said recently that Android isn't a crucial component to Google's business strategy, which makes sense since Google makes more money off iOS than it does off its own mobile operating system.

But even if Android doesn't bring in big bucks, we all know that the OS is an important part of your business, and it won't do anyone any good if you let Android wither.

From threatpost.com today...

"Staggering Increase in Android Malware Variants, Trojan Apps

"The number of malicious programs that target Google's Android mobile platform is growing at an alarming rate, according to data from anti-malware company F-Secure."

So perhaps they've decided to drop it? :)
