Apple's iPhone v Google's Android | Brendan Moran



Apple’s iPhone v Google’s Android

Cia­ra O’Brien has a good arti­cle in today’s Irish Times (16th July 2010) high­light­ing the bat­tle between Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android sys­tem which oper­ates across a range of hand­sets.

Both sys­tems have had recent upgrades. Apple’s iOS4 boasts over 100 new fea­tures or tweaks includ­ing mul­ti­task­ing (lim­it­ed), abil­i­ty to cre­ate fold­ers easy shut­ting down of appli­ca­tions in the back­ground,  but still no Flash sup­port. Android has beefed up Exchange sup­port and has always sup­port­ed Flash.

Apple has a tight con­trol over the os on its iPhone and Google has lit­tle or no con­trol on what hand­sets uses its Android sys­tem. This is rem­i­ni­es­cent of the ear­ly eigth­ies when Apple only allowed Mac OS on its PCs but Microsoft allow DOS/Windows onto any PC.
