While personally very entrenched on the apple side of the fence in terms of my hardware expenditures, I find googles approach to peaceably developing earnestly good design regardless of platform refreshing and admirable. Can anyone think of other instances of companies or firms that develop REAL quality content on a competitor's platform when said company also has its own competing platform (android) that it is trying to market? I tend to be a consumer that latches on to companies that "get it" and am curious to expand my base. This question is not meant to be limited to software.

Nothing that comes to mind. It is an interesting strategy that Google has. IMO it's a sound one too. For example, if Google apps are the best ones on your iPhone, that might change your decision about the next phone you buy. I'm not a fan of everything that Google does, however, I think that in some aspects they have successfully challenged conventional wisdom.
