Android Makes Walt Mossberg’s Top Products of Past Two Decades

 In his last column for the Wall Street Journal's AllThingsD blog, tech journalist Walt Mossberg has listed the most influential consumer products of the past two decades. He chose the top 12 products that "changed the course of digital history," made technology easier to use, and added value for consumers over the 22 years he's been writing for the Wall Street Journal. Coming in at No. 10 is the Linux-based Android mobile OS. Mossberg writes:

"Google quickly jumped into the mobile world the iPhone created with this operating system that has spread to hundreds of devices using the same type of multi-touch interface. Android is now the dominant smartphone platform, with its own huge selection of apps.

"While iPhones have remained relatively pricey, Android is powering much less costly phones."
