While Apple and its latest version of the iPhone, 3GS, have topped recent headlines, there is still a tremendous amount of buzz building about Google’s phone, nicknamed the gPhone. Michael Martin, who maintains a Google-approved blog for Android information called Google And Blog, predicts the summer to be promising for Android and says there will be 18 Android devices circulating by the end of this year.
The phone manufacturers of Android include HTC, Samsung, LG, Motorola, and Huawei. The service providers are T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, Rogers, and Vodaphone. Michael said Sprint would jump on board next year as well.
So, how are Apple and iPhone lovers responding to all this hype? To that question, Michael answered, “That’s a good question!” The primary difference between Android and Apple is that Android is open source and Apple is not. Michael does not believe Apple will relinquish its control and compares the situation to the 1980’s scenario of Mac vs. PC.
What do you think of all this buzz? Are you an iPhone fan or are you anxious to get your hands on Google’s Ion?
