Android’s start was not that smooth as compared to iPhone but Google picked-up with multi-touch and attractive handsets. Multi-carrier and multiple handset manufactures (from Motorolla, HTC, Samsung etc.) gives Android a clear advantage to iPhone’s single hardware and a single carrier.
Yes, iPhone still has a greatest advantage on its pocket, the App Store with more than 150,000 apps, when compared to about 50,000 Android apps. But, strict and inconsistent approval system is scaring away the developers.
Do you think the Android’s ‘Open’ system will win over the ‘Closed’ iPhone system in the long run?
