IPhone 4 is out and so far has been getting reviews and a great first impression - and rightfully so, because the iPhone 4 is a fantastic tool and probably the best smartphone on the market. But Google's Android platform could easily be at the top of the market in the near future.
It's no secret that the Android platform is more open than the IOS 4. Apart from the usual things like Flash, which is available on Android, but the iPhone does not, there are few restrictions on the type of application developers that can be made. For example there are some browsers to vote on the Android, while Apple only allows Safari (and Opera, but technically not create a web page on the device itself). Additionally, Android developers can use scripting language for coding their applications in it, while Apple limit it.
Various kinds of mobile phone
IOS is only available on the iPhone, while Android is available on a variety of smartphone choices - so many Android already surpassed the IOS in the traffic lane. Selection of Android-based smartphone ranges from Motorola Droid impressive (and the new X Droid), Google Nexus One, HTC 4G Evo and others.
It's no secret that a major feature in the iPhone is a library of applications, the iPhone now has about 150,000 applications, while the Android marketplace has about 50,000 applications. However, Android applications marketplace is actually growing faster than the iPhone. Recently more and more developers are starting to move to develop Android applications because of its openness, especially developers who rely on air-Flash device, which Apple recently banned it.
Not AT & T
If the application is the best feature of the iPhone, then AT & T's service is the worst. There is no shortage of criticism of service and AT & T promised to repair tissue after repeatedly disappointed. Now seems to be getting worse, such as AT & T has, because tissue pressure, plus the cover data for the iPhone. And because the iPhone is only available at AT & T, so users are stuck with one operator only. While Android phone available in almost every major network in the U.S. and worldwide.
What needs to be improved to maintain its momentum Android?
Android is not perfect and while it is able to beat the iPhone 4, Adnroid need to improve in several areas. First, Android needs to even out the shocks that have been experienced along the way (to solve the problem of stability that exists) and version 2.2 seems to have done that.
In other areas of Android needs to work on the user interface - the iPhone is known for its simplicity and how intuitive the navigation menu and everything on the phone, while Android when it can look a mess (at least compared with the iPhone).
Although the Android application market is growing both in terms of volume and quality, by purchase and management of applications is not practical, and some streamlining is needed to facilitate users in obtaining applications and generally improve the way the App Marketplace works.
Media. iPod and iPhone has a remarkable film applications, while Android barely manage with the dial itself. Of course, you can download an application for managing your music, but something like a decent media player is expected to come out of the box which is available on any smartphone.
