Comparing The Apple Iphone And The Android

The iphone and the Android phone are two different cell phones that can use operating systems to improve the capabilities of a cell phone. Some of the new capabilities include rapid email and messaging systems, assorted applications, touch screens and the ability to multitask.

The iphone is manufactured by Apple and is currently only sold through AT&T. Very shortly you will also be able purchase the iphone through Verizon as well. Apple brings out a new phone model once a year with a big media event. It will only support the current version of the iphone and the last version of the iphone. If you have an early model, you are dependent on after market support.

The iphone features a video call camera, a 3.5” display screen, 16GB or 32GB of memory, 5mp camera, video recording at 720p, two noise canceling speakers, WiFi access, GPS, and Blue tooth features. The iphone comes with a touch screen and is light weight at 4.8 ounces. The iphone has over 225,000 applications or small programs that you can run with your iphone. This programs or aps allow you to accomplish various functions over a broad range. An example is runpee which tells you when to go to the bathroom during movies at a theater so as not to miss the important parts.

The Droid comes with 8GM expandable up to 40GB, touch screen, 4.3” display screen, 8mp camera, video recording at 720p, three noise canceling speakers, WiFi access, GPS, Blue tooth and hot spot capabilities. This phone is a little heavier at 5.4 ounces. The Droid has only about 20,000 aps at this time but the number is growing. The Droid operating system is based on open system which allows more user discretion in using the Droid.
