    In the next few years Android will dominate the mobile technology market, i wont be surprised if more mobile phone and tablet producers join the Android trend, Apple has dominated the market for a longer time and Android is giving it the chase for its money and let’s see in the next few years what will happen.

    • Don Caprio says:

      That’s obvious. Android is eating up part of Apple’s market share though Apple still remains pretty strong in the US.

    • Albert Vang says:

      I guess you are right… but let’s watch out for Apple’s watch. Apple has always stayed ahead of the pack by creating demand for innovative products that no one else has an answer to!

  2. I seriously love this two gadgets haven’t really set my mind on which one to Buy!

  3. I prefer Using an Android to iPhone! and every single day Android and iPhone are making updates just for one to stand out of other, well if both dominate the Mobile Market Today, both worth it, but to say the best one have to wait little more years to determine which one really maintain the Market and Stand out, both are currently engaging in battle, lets just wait till the fight finish.

    • Albert Vang says:

      I guess the winner will be Android, if we look in terms of number of users, but it is not as profitable as iPhone. So there’s that too.

  4. Akhil Pulotil says:

    The main difference between Android and iOS platforms is that, Unlike iOS, in Android we have a lot of phone with varying specs to choose from. Also Android makes software updates more frequently than iOS !! BTW, very interesting article and presentation bro !! :-D

    • Don Caprio says:

      Actually, I think iOS software updates are more frequent than Android and it applies to all their devices once it is released.

    • Albert Vang says:

      Thanks Akhil! Glad you liked it. Android’s device choice is certainly a major reasons for its market dominance. But as Don pointed out, Android OS fragmentation remains a big issue.
