Nexus One no iPhone Killer, 5 Reasons Why
It has been rumoured as usual that the new Google Nexus One is the next possible iPhone killer; however, the Head of Technology (Editorial) for Telegraph Media Group, Shane Richmond believes the Nexus One won’t kill the iPhone and has come up with 5 reasons why.
Firstly iTunes automatically keeps the iPhone updated with music, and although it is possible to sync Android with iTunes it usually means using a third-party application along with a manual process, and Android can’t update ratings or paycounts in iTunes.
Next is again to do with iPhone sync as videos and photos auto-sync with iPhoto, geo-tags them and sorts them into folders, and is then auto-synced with Apple TV and backed up to a remote hard drive. Also everything else syncs. He uses third-party apps for task management on the iPhone and laptop which aren’t available on Android and thus not on the Nexus One.
The 3rd reason is to do with applications, although Android has roughly 16,000 apps, Apple has roughly 90,000 available to the iPhone and many apps still aren’t available through the Android Market.
Sitting at 4 is mobile games, which is basically the same as with mobile applications. The iPhone is his mobile gaming device of choice and there are some very strong gaming titles available to the iPhone; while Gameloft has announced a reduction of their investment in Android as their financial director has said that on Android nobody is making significant revenue.
Lastly it’s all in the details apparently; Apple products are usual more expensive than competitors, but you do get what you pay for as the saying goes, and Apple’s attention to detail is what makes Apple products like the iPhone a pleasure to use.
So there it is 5 reasons why the Nexus One won’t kill the iPhone, what do you think, and do you agree or disagree?
