"New iPhones at last means that Android, Google's smartphone middleware, will soon look attractive only for budget vendors selling into fast-growing emerging markets"
I really don't see Android disappearing. Most of the so called innovation in the Iphone 6 (such as bonk to pay) has been in Android phones for years. The main selling point is that it is trendy to have a new Iphone. Perhaps Google should sue Apple over it stealing ideas from Android. Just my thoughts
