Apple guy John Gruber knocks it out of the park with this thoughtful piece on what he calls "the Android opportunity": his take on what Android can to do in order to become a viable alternative to the iPhone for technologists. Two points I couldn't agree with more: Android has to run on decent hardware (preferably a handset Google designs) and better exploit its advantages over the iPhone (like over-the-air Google apps sync, which beats MobileMe any day and is one of the main reasons I use Android). Yes, yes, and yes. Like Gruber, I really hope Google makes this play, because competition is good. Also, people will stop saying to me, "so you really like Android more than the iPhone? Really?"
