“Android is ahead of the iPhone now,” said boldly Google’s Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt today at LeWeb conference in Paris. But interestingly, while he was announcing this, the majority of his listeners were holding nothing but various kinds of iPhones and therefore it is not surprising that no storm of applause and hurrays were heard after he said this. In fact many had quite skeptical looks on their faces. But this fact, seems, did not stop Schmidt, who explained he is making these statements because of “unit volume, ice cream sandwich, price is lower, there are more vendors.”
While Google Chairman can say this because he has to say it, Apple remains one the most popular brands currently all over the world. The amount of iOS applications available now on the market is overwhelming, and many Android apps are being developed on the example of iOS soft. But Schmidt does not agree with this and says, “My prediction is that six months from now you’ll say the opposite.”
At the end Schmidt said they had thought of a mobile technology very much like a computer platform, but things changed now, because they understood they are dealing with devices meant for communication.
