Um, no. Just no. That's simply wrong on the facts.

If you want to go into detail about this, we can take it to Off-Topic or PM (depending on how public you want/need the discussion), but let's not bog down a thread about a device & it's (potential) use in sailing with a completely non-sailing-related debate about the difference between contracts & licenses, the legal doctrine of laches, and how Android is distributed. We can also bring all your other non-sailing related gripes about Google over too if you need to go over them
