The main problem with AppEngine seems to be it does not work very well. I signed up and thought - great - just write a bit of code in Python and scale to millions of users but if you look at any reviews from people who have tried they all have issues eg http://techtraits.com/System%20Admin/2013/02/24/The-problems-of-working-in-App-engine/ or http://www.war-worlds.com/blog/2013/06/switched-away-from-app-engine-couldnt-be-happier
I think if Google and fix it so it just works and does not cost more than their rivals then they could do very well

Re: maybe not DOA, but certainly insignificant...
Well maybe - maybe not. I've not actually played with one but looking at the video it looks to me to be the first phone to actually move the state of phone os development ahead of iOS. When the iphone came out it was way ahead of existing phones, then Android / Blackberry 10 / Phone 8 were kind of catch up efforts to try to keep up with Apple. As an iphone user this is the first thing I've seen that looks a clear step forward from current Apple tech.
Abandoned not by two but five lawyers I believe

2 Dennis Vaco
3 DLA Piper
4 Edelson McGuire
5 Jeffrey A. Lake
He really is a bit careless with his lawyers and should look after them better
