cookie monsturr, 13 Dec 2012you're right and you're wrong. I'm not presenting it as the reverse.. what im saying is, mobil... moreSmart TV is already completely dominated by android. Actually, you can use Smartphone Hardware as a small Computer, like your infotainment, but it will definetely use the OS, which is free to use for Car OEMS and which at the same time is compatible with all of your other systems, like your smartphone, which you have with you at almost all times. Infotainment needs a few features, which are easily added with an App running on Top of an Android System hidden under it. Practically everything can have a computer build in, have smart features, but they wont run iOS on it, because it is way too expensive and exclusively for Apple. WP also costs and toooo less people use it. The right way for a company is to use android in their smart devices, because it is free and runs on a lot of different hardware. The only thing I can see in near future as a threat is Windows 8 running on Intels x86 Architecture, because that would enable using good old Windows Software on your Tablet and Phones, but as long as that doesnt happen, Android has more then enough time to catch up, fill up the holes and actually develop their stuff in a manner, how the controls work at that time and so it will always be fresh.
War??? Are you crazy? One soldier per year agains thousands? Interesting war... lol
som12, 13 Dec 2012Obviously Android will win. I have even seen 50$ Android handsets by cheapo chineese companie... moreYou know nothing about Indian market my friend. I am from India ask me which phones are used here.
1 out of 4 android phones is samsung. The phones u talking of $50 arent sold on large scale here and these phones arent of $50 they are minimum 100$. And please tell me where did you find a $50 droid phone in India. Even i would want to see for myself. Please dont post nonsense about Indian market. You cannot find a better range of phones either than India or China. And about cheap phones what is wrong in it.... whats the problem if we get cheap phone with good specs..... please get ur facts cleared
cookie monsturr, 13 Dec 2012you're right and you're wrong. I'm not presenting it as the reverse.. what im saying is, mobil... moreActuall, I think Google did mention something about expanding to tvs as well as other devices. And even if they hadn't, I'm sure they'd go in that direction if they found it to be a lucrative area.
Even at their own topic, Android fans still bash other Os's?? Get a life guys and grow up. And if you don't know how to construct a proper sentence with SENSE don't post your crap here.
I like Android but Eric Schmidt should just shut up. Really, him talking may do more harm than good for Android AND Google. Besides, given his past with Apple, he shouldn't make any comments at all and do some actual work instead..
Brother did u all stil remember this ANDROID OS is a copy of IOS ... Thy hav sam features nd app... Thn hw the android be popular?...... Without the entry IOS there be no android...
kostac, 13 Dec 20121. if you don't know the language good enough to make sense, don't post! 2. iOs hard to man... moreI'm know that ios is a very nice os,but people today wants a smartphone that easy to use,no need to sync like itunes,o zune at wp7...why you get angry?? FYI not all people in the world having a computers,or not all knows how to operate an itunes,zune or any softwares...im not fooling ios bro.
The prices will never go UP on android cuz the competition is now inside android and google is always the winner
kostac, 13 Dec 2012you don't have to be a genius... there are plenty of stupid consumers out there..don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to defend anybody or something like that but by simply choosing an HTC/Samsung/LG or whatever flagship(which is not what you call cheap) instead of an iphone doesn't really qualify you as smarter...
Antonym, 13 Dec 2012The mobile sector is growing fastest and taking market away from other devices, and you presen... moreyou're right and you're wrong. I'm not presenting it as the reverse.. what im saying is, mobile products include cell phones and tablets (and thats it).. and right now, microsoft and apple are working on things that include things like tvs, entertainment and video game consoles, full touch/motion integrated computers, surface computers, etc.. all those markets combined are FAR bigger than just phones + tablets alone. Yes everything is going mobile.. but android does NOT have the capability to compete against windows 8 and apple OS (non-mobile).
the capabilty of android is targeted to stay within the scope of mobile products and that is it (this is what google claims). where as apple and microsoft are far more versatile.
Anonymous, 13 Dec 2012google getting cockier but I would've expected more from a CEO, he's comparing apples with can... moreYeah right only good at making money and fooling customers. Google's Android is free, Apps for iOS is free (would have been unfair to say free on their own platform). In spite of the fact that they are open source.
"We will end up with a not perfectly controlled and not perfectly managed bigger pie by virtue of open systems."
There is no war between Android and iOS, the was is between Samsung(Galaxy S) and Apple(iPhone).
