I am sure many have seen the press on Android and all of the features it “does better” than the iPhone.
The one feature I think that will ultimately kill the iPhone is the Android SDK. You can download the Android SDK for Windows, Mac, and Linux and you can also just install it into your existing Eclipse IDE. Just having this available to all Eclipse developers is HUGE. This means you can start playing immediately without owning a specific OS/Computer – like a Mac.
This is a consistent mistake Apple makes over and over and it just shocks me, now Google is taking advantage of it. Don’t get me wrong I think Apple makes great products but the entire “we need control” mentality just exhausts everyone. If the Android devices end up being better hardware than the iPhone then I don’t see how iPhone will be able to compete. I know there is a lot of talk about the iPhone becoming more open and moving to other carriers but I think it just may be too little too late – maybe. Android is around the corner Apple – get moving!
