Default Andy Rubin says Android was first built for cameras, we're glad he reconsidered

Most of us who've followed the history of Android tend to presume that it was a single-minded effort to open up the smartphone world. Not so, ex-Android chief Andy Rubin says. The OS co-creator just mentioned at a Tokyo summit that Android was first pitched in April 2004 as the foundation for connected cameras that would store photos online. When it became clear that the digital photography market was relatively small, the fledgling team shifted its attention to cellphones within the space of five months. We know how history played out after that fateful decision, and arguably smartphones are richer for it -- that said, it's amusing to discover that smart shooters like the Galaxy Camera just represent Android's original strategy come full circle.
