Android Passes iPhone OS in U.S. Purchases
Um...that's not saying much...
This wasn't really about which OS is better. This is just something I expected and isn't earth shattering news.
Apple has been a synonomous name for many years. Android is very new. Android's impact into mainstream acceptance will not happen overnight. However, they are indeed gaining respect very quickly as a premier OS. This is proof that the more Android increases their selection while maintaining an open source practice, adding what consumers seek, it will be far more received as the popular choice such as Windows over Mac.
That being said, the one thing I don't want to happen is Android end up like Windows Mobile. There were so many different WM phones out there that there was not real unity. Different resolutions, different processors, different versions. I hope Android sets some kind of standard.
add to that, although android is practically same as winmo, their main difference ...
[...] When a single device with Android passes the iPhone, then I will think the world.
well the title is "Android Passes iPhone OS in U.S. Purchases" notice that Andorid is not a device, it's an OS, so in other words "Android [OS] Passes iPhone "OS" in U.S. Purchases"
Also the decision of sticking with one the device (the iPhone) and one carrier (AT&T) was apple's, and perhaps is causing it to sell less units. Android wanted to have its OS for all carriers and device manufactures, for that reason they sell more... it's all about making good decisions in business to sell more
Its simple math, of course they will sell more of the OS because the IS relatively more available then Apples scare apple OS which can only be found one device and under one carrier.
And just like you point out, I'm not saying who is better then the other but lets look at the simple math people.
Apple looks at things, like if we control our product, our product will be a better product because we have our best interest. Third party company's will not have your product at best interest but their revenue more so.
Think about dole, the fruit and veggie company.
Think if they were the farmers, the package'r, the d...
Android has come on the market to sell its Operating system to phone makers and has done a good job at it. Why would they want to limit where they put there Operating system when they can put it on all the carriers?
Why does AT&T have a android phone now? AT&T is in it to make money and they will sell Android to make more money because they know that is where the $$$$ is for them now.
