The Android tablet may prove to be better than the iPad in many aspects. Here are the top 5 reasons why Android Tablets will be challenging the iPad stronghold as the consumers’ preferred tablet. It’s important to keep in mind that some features that don’t matter at all to one user, might mean everything to another user. In addition, since the Android Tablet is newer than the iPad, it was able to function beyond design flaws that existed earlier. All of these devices are bigger than a cellular phone but not as bulky as a notebook computer.
Of late, Android developers are in a fix. It has been six months since the launch of the Android Honeycomb Tablet in the Market and it has not garnered a potential user base. The problem clearly lies in the dearth in apps optimized for the Android Tablets and analysts are of the view that an evident lack of these Honeycomb aka Android 3.0 Applications is what makes it a less chosen Tablet as opposed to the Apple’s iPad. But any new technology faces such non-acceptance in the beginning; the Honeycomb tablet also had its share of tough criticism and rejection from the global consumers with Apple being the dominant competitor today in the market. Android developers are trying their best to convince their consumers that the Android optimized apps will see a rise by the end of 2011 despite its sluggish start.
With any small or large businesses; winning and losing are part of the game. It is really hard to find one company that either steadily grows or steadily decays in growth; there always will be bit of ups and downs on the path. But we are not either worried or talking about all those companies out there, but Microsoft. Why? Because it is one of the biggies that influences our day to day lives and also is an important part of our business and personal lives.
Microsoft had recently released many products of which some of them got great applaud from the crowd, but some others didn’t make it. You know, it is with all business, when you launch a product not everyone likes it. And not every product you launch goes viral and talked by people.
Well, nobody gets tired of making predictions, or at least thinking of what the future looks like. Predictions were made for several technological categories like Security, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and a more generic forecast on Information Technology as a whole. Similarly, we can never stop thinking of making forecasts for one of the most loved technology solutions in the world – Open Source.
I know, it is too early to be thinking of the CES 2012, especially when the CES 2011 has just recently come to an end and we still haven’t delved deep into the nitty-gritties of the event’s outcome. However, it does not stop us from thinking and talking about the expectations from the next CES event. There were so many innovative products and services that were discussed, introduced and anticipated in this year’s event, but there has never been the prominent presence of Open Source Software. This is exactly what the hope shall be for next year’s event – A prominent presence of Open Source Software at CES 2012.
Let us take a look at 5 anticipated Open Source projects to be spoken about in the coming up event.
1. Ubuntu to take centre stage
Though Canonical’s Ubuntu Linux distribution has made its presence felt during CES events, the coverage that it deserves has still not been given to it. There was just this one time when a series of ARM-powered laptops debuted by Chinese firm Nufront in one of the CES events. Ubuntu’s successful growth rate with its innovative feature-list and the fact that it is absolutely free makes it, and understandably so, a thing of the future and hence deserves a centre stage at a CES event. It is also essential that we see Ubuntu in 2 kinds at the event – One as a stand-alone operating system on laptops, notebooks and tablets and Two routinely as a dual-boot option.
Acer which is more often than not known for its efficient Notebooks and its customized production of Ferrari Smartphones, now wants to gain a lot of attention. This attention-grabbing stint of Acer will be through the launch of not just one product, but the unveiling of a whole range of new-age hardware products which shall cater to a future-ready consumer audience. In the earlier days (early 2000) it was and even now is to some extent, Apple which regularly comes up with novel products that are termed legendarily as ground-breaking innovations. In the recent past, Apple is slowly but steadily facing competition from several players who also seem to have started making headlines with their innovative product-launches.
