Editor’s note: This originally appeared on Analyse Asia, a weekly podcast hosted by Bernard Leong, dedicated to dissecting the pulse of business, technology, and media in Asia. The podcast features guests from Asia’s vibrant tech community.

Ben Bajarin from Creative Strategies & Techpinions joined us in a two part conversation on post-Google I/O & Apple WWDC 2017 and its impact on Asia. In the first part, we discussed the major announcements arising from Google I/O 2017 with the focus on artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented / virtual reality (AR/VR), the tension rising between the Asian OEMs with Google on the Android fragmentation and developer engagement & whether Andy Rudin’s new gig with the Essential phone be acquired by one of the major Asian OEMs.
