    Understanding Google and Apple's Strategy

    Advertisement



    I've been following a series of articles that have really shed some light on questions I've had about the Android OS and the iPhone OS. It also touches on how Carriers are impacted which ultimately effect you and I as customers.

    It's a very long read (3 part series) but offers some pretty neat insight to how Google and Apple differ in their Business Plan.
    If your a SmartPhone Enthusiast (Junkie) like me it's worth a read.

    Here are the Topics discussed:
    Android vs. iPhone: under the surface
    Platform environment: Google and Apple
    Android vs. iPhone: the business model
    Android vs. iPhone: Restrictions vs security
    Software integration in consumer devices
    Software updates: iPhone and Android
    Platform advancement: iPhone and Android
    Bundled Apps: iPhone and Android
    Third party software solutions

    Inside Google's Android and Apple's iPhone OS as core platforms

    Inside Google's Android and Apple's iPhone OS as business models

    It's a pretty long read but it's worth it if you want to have a better understanding of how each approach doing business.
