PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Ian G. Clifton: "Early on, iOS did a lot to push mobile devices forward and helped set bars in a lot of areas for other platforms to meet. Unfortunately, iOS has not changed much lately and in some ways hurts Android when used as the 'golden standard' due to its limitations. A lot of the harm isn't realized by consumers, but Android developers encounter it constantly when something has to be done 'the iOS way' or an Android feature is not even considered because iOS cannot do the same."

If Apple doesn't do something to radically re-define iOS soon, it's probably gonna end up a distant second, just like Macs on the desktop.


iOS will end up being a distant second or third no matter what Apple does. IBM lost the battle with IBM PC clones and MS, Apple lost the battle with IBM PC clones and MS.

I don't see any reason why iOS will win the battle with Android and hundreds of phone and tablet manufacturers.

I would sell Apple shares if I had any, now that the price is still high. ;)
