There is serious competition / war between Apple and Google in the tech world right now. In this competition, which we saw especially in the tablet and smartphone market, Apple was the leading party in 2010. But this advantage seems to change direction from Google in 2011. Experts say that 2011 will be the year of Google in the smartphone market. In the rest of the article, we will look at the reasons for this prediction.
The first reason is the applications developed for Android. The number of apps in the Apple Store is almost twice the number of apps for Android. However, when we look at the recent development, it is said that Android, which has 150 thousand applications, will increase this number very quickly in 2011 and pass Apple. One of the important reasons for this very rapid increase is that the application developer companies prefer Android more.
Secondly, we can show the technical features provided by Android. The speed and long battery life of Gingerbread with Nexus S impressed users. With the release of the Android 3.0 tablet Honeycomb, Google is expected to take its superior technical features even further.
The third and most important reason is the price and kind advantage of Android. In the smartphone market where Apple only exists with the iPhone series, Android dominates its rival in terms of variety. This variety naturally broadens the price range. Affordable smartphones with Android technology are available in the market, despite the high and stable prices of the iPhone, which are almost never falling. Also, the fact that every new model released by iPhone is above the previous one, confuses its users. For example, rumors about iPhone 5 can cause potential iPhone 4 customers to wait or give up the new version, although the product is almost new.
Experts say it will sell twice as many smartphones in 2011 compared to last year. It seems that Google will grab the biggest slice of this increase.
