004 The Future of Google’s Android and your Productivity – ProductivityCast

After our discussion on “Second Screen Productivity” (Episode 003), Augusto and Ray were discussing off-mic about the future of Google's Android and its proliferation around the globe on most mobile devices in use today. We decided to have a high-level discussion (let's plainly call it what it is, pontificating) about the current state of Google’s mobile operating system and how its changes (along with other operating systems) affect users’ productivity.

Enjoy! Give us feedback! And, thanks for listening!
