A thought:

People are not out buying box- or folding-computers because the market is
saturated. No one needs the latest, and greatest computer, but we still
have them, and we may still need them to write essays / reports; thus, we
still need the OS. We are, however, going to need, for the present time,
the latest, and greatest smart phone.

We may need to buy computers when voice-activation comes along - at which
time they may be built into the houses, and these will need the OS.

I believe we want to develop for the hand-held data-device; we sell the OS
by installing on our own devices, overtop of Android.

Just my thoughts on redundancy.
