    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.

    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.

    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 !! 😀
