Nightline goes into Google's Android HQ

December 24, 2010: 9:08 AM ET

Bringing the smartphone news to the masses in a topical fashion.

It appears that it is time for the smartphone news to go mainstream, with news of the ongoing battle between Microsoft (MSFT), Google (GOOG) and Apple (AAPL) hitting ABC's Nightline viewers this week (after painful 1 minute commercial):

Two interesting things to note:

1. RIM's(RIMM) Blackberry wasn't even mentioned. Nor was global smartphone leader, Nokia(NOK)/Symbian.

2. In the time this short was made, Google's huge sales number weren't common knowledge.  The report said Apple's iPhone were outselling those that run Android.  ABC noted Android's higher sales rate, 300,000/day, at the end.
