Here are our thoughts:
Comcast and Charter are both powerhouses in their own right. Together, are they a mobile development dream team that can stand against Apple, Google, and Microsoft? If they announced this partnership 10 years ago this wouldn’t be a question. As it stands now however, they not only need to develop a mobile operating system unique enough from android or apple, but they also have to make something so good, it sheds people of their brand loyalty. To make matters worse Comcast already doesn’t have the best reputation among customer service, albeit the progress they have made to be better. However big the uphill battle may be, they do have one MAJOR advantage: When two corporations pool their resources together and cooperate on a project, magic usually follows.
