Is Android OS More Fun than Apple iOS Operating System?
Today we are asking the question – “Is Android OS More Fun than Apple iOS Operating System?”
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 Operating System.
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 appealing? (Source Ezine Articles)
