Turkey Argument: Which Came First iPhone or Android?

November 28, 2011

The competition between Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android apparently wasn’t laid to rest with the death of Steve Jobs. While Jobs heatedly demanded in his biography that the Android was a stolen Apple product, the search giant Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt begs to differ.

In the recent CNET article “Google’s Schmidt: Android ‘Started before the iPhone Effort”  Schmidt was quoted saying:

Steve is a fantastic human being and someone who I miss very dearly. As a general comment, I think most people would agree that Google is a great innovator and I would also point out that the Android effort started before the iPhone effort.

While the Android company was founded in 2003, several years before the launch of the first iPhone, Apple launched the iPhone in 2007 and the first Android was not released until 2008. Also, Schmidt’s service on the Apple board of directors during the iPhone’s development, gives his claim a bit less credibility.

As both company’s products continues to advance, I’m sure that the feud between Apple and Google will not end here. However, why did the turkey cross the road? To get either an iPhone or an Android device?

    Eric Schmidt must have forgotten to mention that before 2007 when the iPhone came Out Android was a rip off of the blackberry OS. Then when the uPhone came Android turned into a touchscreen OS and started copying Apple’s iOS.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    Have eBay suspend your account? I got suspended for no cause! I dropped all my revenue, my business was online dependent. I needed to find a solution. At the end I am again for real.

    Jesus Sandovar,

    I have two or three readers. However, there are some “real” experts who use my information as inspiration.
    I am confident that 20 somethings know more than I do or than my writers know.

    Our Federal Govt. is operating so far outside of its design parameters that this type of discussion becomes futile. IMO the place to begin is eliminating tax which would force massive reductions in power and programs, bringing the govt. more in line with the founders structure. Only then can a discussion vis-a-vis federal and state govts. become worthwhile.
