Sprint’s Steve Elman Talks Android

For many of the 1,000-plus developers at the Sprint Open Developers Conference this Tuesday, there was one word on their lips: Android.

Steve Elfman, president of network operations and wholesale for Sprint, stated it’s not just about iPhone envy. He said the Android ecosystem is growing with so much broad support that it has the potential to become a new standard for the industry.

“In the old PC days, Apple came out with a vertically integrated computer that was great but was a niche product, while Windows became the operating system for all manufacturers to build on,” he said. “I think Android has the opportunity to be the Windows of 2010 and beyond.”
