Microsoft and Google are technically enemies in this competitive market, but the tech industry has shown us time and again that it is not a place where grudges are often held. Competitors could be battling each other in court while also signing deals to manufacture parts for each other. Simultaneously kissing and slapping enemies has become a habit around here.
Nevertheless, Microsoft and Google have a love/hate relationship that has been leaning more towards the sweet side lately. Microsoft can diss the Android OS all they want, but they can’t deny their own platform and devices are not really taking off. Windows Phone continues to hold only 2.57% of the world’s mobile OS market share, which is, simply put, quite insignificant compared to the big guys.
