Just saw Google I/O 2011 keynote end. The event show many fight with Apple strongly! Soft start with Android Honeycomb 3.1 update with some features and continue with the Cloud services like Movies rental and Music on the cloud. What’s great is this will be available to all Android devices (Tablets, Mobile phones, etc.) with ease and wirelessly! They fight Apple with Cloud and Wireless syncing.
A bit more technology about the face detection on video call. And a bit more on USB support in Android device that will open up the chance for a lot USB devices to be happy, the chance that not yet come from Apple. Oh.. I nearly forget about the new Android OS called “Ice cream sandwich” with many amazing features 😉 (sound delicious?).
More exciting than that is the ADK, it was the hardware that make possible to many kind of electronics to working and talking with Android device, like exercise bicycles! Last but not least is the Android Home support (sorry, I can’t remember the name) that help make it possible to control electronics devices in Home with Android device wirelessly. This also working with Music on the cloud service (mentioned earlier). This will create a lot more possibilities we will see so soon.
A shocking surprise to all audiences is Google and Samsung will give out the new limited edition of Galaxy Tab with Android Honeycomb 3.0 OS to all 5,000 audiences! (I want to be there! :D). This new Galaxy Tab is very thin and (excuse me) very look like Apple iPad2.
With open-source mindset, it open up the market for developer and competition. From my study of Economics, it says that action like this help the overall community and quality of life of people, I believe. From today, the fight between Google and Apple will be more hot!
