@Warren: I don't presume to speak for @kdboyce but here are two where Apple excels in apps: 1.Not playing any flash content! This, it does, very vehemently! 2. OK, Seriously, developing an app for Apple products ensures 100% compatibility because of its stringent requirements to comply standards of its OS. Of late, Microsoft may also be requiring its Windows phone developers to follow similar practices. It is yet to be seen how successful Windows phones will be, for that matter Nokia. It is no surprise that Android phones are selling more. A fundamental differentiation Google made was to engage/involve the developer community early on. MP Divakar

How about an example or two of your view on "Applications where Apple still excels"?

Interesting comment. Here the article is discussing the newly acquired leadership position of the Android operating system in smartphones and you are "hoping" that Nokia will retain its #1 position as it moves away from its Symbian operating system to Win7. That is interesting.

Anyone can grab the Android code and put that on any device, whereas MS will only license their phone software according to strict rules. Surely there is less fear of becoming a look-alike with Android than MS.

A year from now Android will be the OS of choice for tablets and will be giving the iPad a run for the money in most areas except for Applications where Apple still excels.

Googles Android couldn't have been better timed in retrospect. It has taken the world of smart phone by storm and continues to make inroads. It has reduced the BOM and NRE costs for the OEM's while simultanesouly shortening the release times for each new model. How else could so many highend phones come out in such a short span of time. But the vendors are doing little else to distinguish amongst themseleves. They make good money in the short run but run the risk of becoming prey to look alikes.

With a lead heading like "Android wins 35% of Q1 smartphone market" I would have expected a table that compares the phone OS market shares.

Internet, email (messaging), and audio/video can now be experienced on mobile devices with a very small loss in user experience (compared to laptops). Even flash based apps and games run. I see a tendency toward the biggest thing that people can carry around in their shirt pocket or hip holster as being ultimate goal of the one device that will "do all." Although I reluctantly switched away from MS mobile because timing, the one person that I know that has a Windows phone is very happy with it.

The popularity of smartphone is because of the demand of mobile Internet. Both iOS (Apple iPhone) and Android based device fulfill consumers' wish. Windows 7 mobile comes late to the market. Nokia has been lagging in responding to the change of market. Will Nokia be able to maintain its position in the mobile phone market is subjected to their vision to deliver the next best product to the market? The price tag of Apple iPhone and of most Android based devices is still too high to most consumers in some parts of the world. Shall Nokia focus on making a better and faster smartphone? Or shall Nokia grab another segment of the market?

It is heartening to read that NOKIA still leads the lot as far as the worldwide sales are concerned. With a lot of restructuring happening in Nokia in terms of technology partnerships , it is hoped that Nokia will retain its world no 1 position in the coming years

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
