Today we are asking the question - "Is Android Operating System more fun
than Apple iOS?"
The latest android operating system is called Ice Cream Sandwich! They
could have been more technical, and called it AOS4 like Apple calls their
OS for iPhone - latest version iOS5.1. Just doesn't sound as fun as "Ice
Cream Sandwich" or "Gingerbread" a previous version of their Android
Android Operating System
Google's acquisition of Android Inc in 2005 had the Android Operating
System being called robot names in internal releases (Astro & Bender).
Allegedly changed to desserts to avoid trademark issues.
So Cupcake 1.5 was born. Before evolving in to Gingerbread, we had Donut,
Eclair and Froyo.
As the Android Operating System grew up we got Honeycomb, although
personally I think Huckleberry Pie would have been a better choice!
The question remains "Is Android more fun than Apple?" Apple's operating
system is only supported by devices sold by Apple, their Apps go through
a much more rigorous approval process than Google's before being hosted
in the iTunes Store. Android Operating System is an open source OS, used
by many manufactures from all over the world to produce Smart Phones and
Tablets with many different designs. No one Android Phone manufacturer
has managed to compete with Apple's iPhone in terms of number of units
sold - iPhone is currently selling about 375000 units per day!
Android has about 500000 sales per day and climbing!
Apple makes it's income from producing quality (and some would argue
expensive) products with it's exclusive iOS. Google on the other hand has
never been a manufacturing company, but rather has a web presence that is
unrivaled by any other company in the world! They saw, in my humble
opinion, a huge market that was just beginning to emerge back in 2005 -
The Mobile Smart Phone/Tablet. They knew it would be the next step for
not only Cell Phones, but also the WorldWideWeb! Everybody would want to
be Mobile and connected!
Google needed a way to play in this huge market, so they did what they
have done all along, provide a free platform, and make their profits from
Advertising, after all, that is the Google way!
Android may not be more fun than Apple, but the images are a lot cooler!
What do you think? Do you like Androids images? Is Apple's image more
