Home Forums Other iPhone VS Android Re: iPhone VS Android


@eric…even the iphone 5 will NOT have 4g capability. Yes…no 4g for the new iphone that is do out this summer. The new LTE chip and components are larger then the veteran 3g components….thus the new phones are slightly thicker, but still not that big of an issue for what you get in return. In time they will shrink in size like when 3g first came out. Not sure the reason why Apple will not be going to 4g…some say they don’t want to make a larger phone when Apple tries to make everything slimmer, thinner and pretty. Others say it is Apple finally confronting the fact they are competing against a fleet of competition (using open source) that work hard to stay on the cutting edge with new phones being released every week it seems. Apple’s seo even announced towards the end of last year that they would not be able to stay up with android and at rate is is growing…thanks to open source. Apple is a great product, but they fault in the fact that they keep everything close lid. Everything has to go through them….for everything! iphone and android are great products as it just depends on what you want. Also keep in mind dual core is coming (even the iphone 5) and this will be changing the playing field for developers as they can really show off their talents.
One phone that you might want to keep an eye on is the Motorola Droid Bionic do out by summer. Will have dual core and has the ability to hook into your laptop so you can run it on you laptop…. awesome! It was scheduled to be released on the verizon LTE 4g network this month, but has been delayed as rumor is they want to improve on the phone they showed at the Vegas show (which was the show stopper as was)….so only one can imagine what they have coming.
Pick your phone…use it ….love it….they all do what you want.
