Android vs. Apple OS which do you think is better?Â Which has a brighter future.Â I love tech toys.Â I donâ€™t have a tablet yetâ€¦ saving my pennies, but I have to wonder if iPad really is the way to go in the future.Â I know Apple apologists would be horrified to hear me say that, but I have a couple of concerns.Â The first is price, for instance Apple is already having to justify the price of their new 7â€ť mini-iPad which is priced at $329.Â Mini tablets running the Android OS: Amazon Kindle Fire HD and Google Nexus 7 are priced at $199.
The original 10â€ť iPads I know are still the king of the hill in that category, but Samsungâ€™s Galaxy Note 10.1 looks pretty impressive and innovative.Â Then thereâ€™s Microsoftâ€™s Surface running Windows RT or Windows 8â€¦ ah never mind.Â I donâ€™t see them competing long term.Â Anyway, I donâ€™t know if Apple will be king of the hill much longer.
I currently have an Android OS phone â€“ HTC Evo Shift.Â I donâ€™t recommend it.Â I like Android, but I donâ€™t like this phone or the network Iâ€™m on (Sprint).Â Iâ€™m waiting until April when my contract is up for a different phone.Â I thought Iâ€™d go for an iPhone, but now Iâ€™m not so sure.Â The iPhone 5 was underwhelming, in my opinion, with its updates.Â There was very little innovation.
Which brings me to my next beef with Apple â€“ I donâ€™t know how much longer Apple, post-Steve Jobs will be able to compete and innovate.Â He really seemed to be the creative genius behind their products.Â Perhaps Iâ€™m wrong, but when Apple had to sue Samsung over minor issues you have to wonder if theyâ€™ll be able to keep up.Â They won their lawsuit (Samsung recently countered with a lawsuit of their own), but basically told the world that Samsungâ€™s Galaxy S III is almost like the iPhone, but cheaper.Â Samsung, while paying a steep price, canâ€™t ask for a better marketing campaign than that.
Anyway Android phones like the Samsung Galaxy S III are starting to level the playing field.Â So Iâ€™m not convinced about converting to Apple.
Thoughts?Â Any Apple apologists or Android apologist who would like to weigh in?
