ArsTechnica weighs in on Oracle’s Java lawsuit

I always enjoy reading ArsTechnica.  Maybe just me, but always find their articles even keeled.   They provide their input on the Oracle Java lawsuit against Google over Android and the Dalvik VM.

This could represent a good chance for HP and its newly acquired WebOS technology from Palm.  The Oracle lawsuit will at least in the near term make Android adopters pause and think first.  WebOS could be a good alternative, IF (big IF here), IF… HP can move quickly.  Not something they are known for.

And of course, there is also the ongoing rumor of Apple having a Verizon phone as well.   Should make for an interesting future.
