Apple vs Google’s Android
Apple Versus Android: Who Will Win?
As the battle between Apple and Android continues, you might be wondering what all the fuss is about, who is winning right now, and who will ultimately win the battle for dominance in the smartphone market. At the heart of the conflict is the position taken by Apple’s co-founder and former CEO, Steve Jobs. He strongly believed that Google, who owns Android, should have stayed in the “search” business rather than enter the phone market. Furthermore, he insisted that manufacturing companies such as Samsung might be using Android technologies to access the smartphone market, but they were also copycatting Apple’s innovative designs and ideas.
Apple’s continuing legal aggression may be an expression of Jobs vehement desire to “destroy Google.” Currently, Apple is in court and alleging patent infringements against various handset manufacturers in 10 different countries, including Korean-owned Samsung. Interestingly, Apple is also Samsung’s biggest customer and spends more than $7 billion a year purchasing essential phone components from its rival.
Apple’s product line is basically limited to the iPad and the iPhone. Powered by the A5 chip and using the iOS operating system, the smartphone offers twice the speed and seven times faster graphics than other competitors. The 8-megapixel camera records 1080 HD video and offers impressive image stabilisation. However, no new Apple phones are being brought to market at this time or in the near future.
Fans of the Apple iPhone love its Siri voice assistant, perhaps because it seems somehow more personable. The updated version, which will be out this fall, can be added to almost any device that supports iOS 6. This includes incorporating it into the steering wheels of car brands such as Toyota, Audi, Mercedes, GM, Honda, and BMW. Overall, the voice program just seems faster and more accurate.
On the other hand, with no new Apple product, Samsung’s Galaxy S III is the only real competition on the market at this moment. It offers cutting-edge smartphone technology, an impressive S-Voice vocal feature, and some other unique Samsung innovations. It is also appearing on the world scene at the perfect time. The Galaxy S III will definitely benefit from all the exposure it will receive as the official phone of the 2012 London Olympics. It may also pick up 1Phone 3GS and iPhone 4 users whose contracts are ending and who wish to upgrade.
One of the advantages of competition is that the consumer often benefits the most. To choose the right smartphone for your life and lifestyle, visit www.carphonewarehouse.com. Experts can answer your questions and help you choose the perfect phone for your communication needs.
