Those of you who follow me on Twitter may have noticed the change of location on my profile page.

One of the things we knew about the currently on going Google I/O 2011 event, which is being streamed live, was that it would feature the unveiling of the next version of Android for smartphones.

Yesterday’s iPad 2 launch event went in a fashion we have become accustomed to. Steve Jobs took the stage, which was a surprise given he was on a medical leave, and as expected he shared some sensational statistics – iPhone sales crossing the 100 million mark, 15 M iPads sold in 2010, and so on. But one thing which caught my attention was Steve Jobs comparing iPad apps count (65,000) to that of Honeycomb (100). More on this in the coming paragraph.
