iPhone vs Andriod

Posted: November 19, 2010 in Development, Internet, tech

The battle continues as the two giant companies battle over which phone we as the customers should use. Recently stats show that the two are even in the month of October in term of smartphones. When comparing the two iPhone gets a heads up for usability but Android gets the heads up for apps so one has to decide between excellent usability or top of the range new fresh apps. Yes iPhone does have apps for the iPhone range but the Android apps are far better and they arrive before the iPhone gets them.

 

So which is your pick ?

Obviously I need to do more research about Google. Apparently they have cars that drive themselves which are to be released all in due time. I just thought these guys were only into web stuff ( search engine,chrome etc). Wow these cars use cameras and Google maps of-course to navigate to your designated location. Question is are they safe ?

Giant social media Facebook is joining skype to intergrate and enhance  the social media experince. Users will be able to add all their friends from facebook into skype and be able to chat to them directly from skype chat. Skype users can call Facebook friends directly on mobile or landline phones, send SMS messages or make free Skype-to-Skype calls to Facebook friends who are also Skype users.
