Motorola did a Q&A via Twitter. Here is a question that interests me:
Q: True Android experience is clear in both Moto X and G and you went for pure approach. Why? A: This approach allows us to create , simple, meaningful experiences - like provide software updates quicker than competitors
I hope Motorola continues on this path after being acquired by Lenovo. And I would love the Lenovo Yoga Tab even more, if it ran pure Android.
Did you see the new Sony Xperia Z2 in Barcelona ? Thanks.
Volker, I am not sure what you are trying to say, especially since you have critizised Google lately for its services - or do I have to understand "pure Android" as "Android without Google services"?
I mean Pure Android without a vendor skin. Like a Nexus device.
Thank you for the clarification. :-) Yet I am still a bit confused about your statement as I believe the lack of interoperability of Google services makes you stay away from Android and rather embrace the Windows Phone?
The other way around. I started using modern Windows devices like Surface and Lumias and found Google to be increasingly hostile to Microsoft customers. It became a pain in the ass to use Google services. That's when I stopped using Google+ and chose other services where possible.
If you are a Google customer with Android or Chrome, the world looks different. You want to be as close as you can.
Sorry Volker, for the risk of getting on your nerves I have to ask again because you are my trendmeter, so to say. :-)
I understood you left Google+ because of the perceived hostility against Microsoft device users. I understand your need to have services work universally because of the frequent switching of devices. So at the bottom I basically memorized the message: "don't use Android unless you want to be locked into an Android world".
Based on this message, your comment on this Q&A came as a surprise to me. As I don't visit your webpage that frequently anymore, I did some reading and believe I have an idea why you like the Lenovo Yoga Tab, but is it good enough for you to promote Android again?
The Yoga is good enough to be used daily. It's just very nice to hold. But it's not a very good Android implementation. Pure Kitkat would be much nicer.
