The androids are coming and, if the tech giant has its way, there will be one in your house, one in your car and one on your wrist
Android is taking over. Next thing it will be in your house, your car and on your wrist
APPLE has serious competition. The era of Google and Android seems to be with us. Android phones have been growing rapidly and exceed 80 per cent of the global smartphone market compared with Apple’s 15 per cent market share. And now Google has decided to take on many other challenges.
With phones, tablets, desktop and laptop computers, smart watches, TVs, home automation, vehicles, Google Now virtual valet, Fitness platform and an entertainment ecosystem with Play, Google is far more developed than anyone else at offering a seamless experience across all aspects of electronic life.
Google is likely to make drones, game consoles and get into the personal health market in a big way. If Google is not involved in an area at the moment, you can be sure it is thinking about it.
While Apple has been quiet on the innovation side, it must be remembered that Apple is bigger than either Google or Microsoft and bigger than both of them combined on the stock exchange. It would be remiss to write off Apple just yet, but 2014 does seem to be the year of the Google Android revolution.
