This weekend, I visited a friend who has replaced his Blackberry Playbook with an Android HTC Sense tablet. I took the delight to play around with the device and with open thoughts. I actually have to mention that I changed into blown away using how the whole HTC Sense (Android 4.0) felt. It is surely tremendous. As I browsed through the options, one element dawned on me, which is – it’s far the handiest a count of time before we begin seeing Android on Desktop PCs. Such changed into the herbal sense.


The key query is; how are different tablet running systems (OS) competing with Google Android? Honestly, I think it will be tough, especially for Blackberry maker RIM. As RIM maintains begging for greater time to launch a reputable finished working device for both their telephone and tablet devices, it appears Android is moving at a mild pace in viral mode. While this text is based totally on the Tablet marketplace, I may be the usage of smartphones and tablets interchangeably because of the truth that they float directly into one another.

Android vs. Blackberry

This is no context. As much as I cherished Blackberry devices, they’re now out of touch with brand new needs. As I said earlier, RIM is pushing the following primary to revamp on their smartphones to Q2. That really doesn’t be formidable properly for an agency that is already struggling. RIM’s commercial enterprise version is the primary killer.

The reality that they manage the fully eco-device of hardware and software has ended in expectation overload. Whereas, Google can use sincere recognition to get Android prepared while producers work on how satisfactory to offer it on their hardware. Let’s move on rapidly to the real challenges… IOS and Windows eight pill.

Android vs. iOS

Today, Apple’s iPad, which runs iOS, is the biggest opposition to Google’s Android. IOS became the benchmark when it became launched however is going through intense competition from Android in terms of uncooked feature capacity and customization. In addition, it makes matters complex for Apple; they seem to be walking along the identical route as RIM’s

vintage commercial enterprise model of tightly controlling each hardware and software. I don’t assume that this may maintain up properly in the warm pill marketplace. It might be tough for Apple to be as revolutionary as Google in that branch, and history confirms this if we observe the impact Android has had inside the cell phone area.

To further quantify the point that I’m trying to make, Apple dropped from sixty-five % to 54% between September and December 2011. The main beneficiary being Samsung that rose from five% to thirteen% for the duration of the same length.
