Clearly Apple has a restrictive police on development and
commercialization of products for the iOS platform. It is not related
only to development language/environment but also content. Apple censors
and decides what can and what cannot be put in "their" (should be their
customers) tablets/phones/iPods (kind: no porno, no political, no
certain kinds of violence, etc).

One thing that amazes me is that currently there are two contestants to
the "Tablet & Smartphone World Grand Prix": iOS and Android but people
in the SqueakVM/CogVM  communities are centered only around a single
"monopolist" manufacturer. IMHO it would be good to have SqueakVM/CogVM
decently running in Android (>= 2.1).

In the long term I think Android will win this "championship".
