We are weeks away from the holiday season where we will be seeing a lot of bogos (Buy one get one free sales), marked up discounted holiday items, and carriers doing what they can to get those last bit of sales before the start of the new year.

With the future on the horizon what direction would you like to see google and Android manufacturers go in the future? What end of the year grade would you give Motorola, HTC, LG, Samsung, and Google as a whole? Do you see the Google edition experiment a success or a failure? What advice would you, as a consumer, give the various Android manufacturers and Google to help them gain (or keep) your business?
