With Google struggling in the tablet market (i.e. the iPad market), the door is wide open for Microsoft to take a shot at becoming a solid number two. The secret weapon may very well be its Xbox Live service.
The Samsung Galaxy S III could be the first Android to convert masses of iPhone users to Google's mobile OS.
We know the S3 will be quad-core, but the Droid Fighter (HD?) is likely to arrive with a TI ARM-based dual-core, albeit still a fast performer.
Now here's the magic. When you want to make a payment, say for that pastrami double-double and side of pork rinds, you do... nothing.
The big question is how this news will impact Android.
Now that AT&T's five year exclusivity is coming to an end, however, the real questions begin.
Currently Microsoft, with its Zune pass, is one of the few large companies offering a monthly service.
