With WWDC wrapped up, everyone's talking about the features being officiated on the new Apple iPhone 4 and iOS 4. Some might find these features familiar, like video calling, or FaceTime as Apple calls it. Is it really a game-changer, or is Apple playing the catch-up game here?
The Google Android platform is known for being customizable, but therein lies the issue - will you get the latest firmware updates faster than Google's own Nexus One or customized Android devices such as the HTC Desire and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S?
Odd as it is to hear about HTC paying royalties to Microsoft for the use of the latter's software patents on Android devices, this could have an adverse effect on other Android supporters such as Motorola, Samsung and Sony Ericsson.
The list of updates from Apple's iPhone OS 4.0 has definitely impressed many, one of which is the long-awaited multi-tasking. Advantages aside, will this new feature really enhance your user experience, or is Apple for once playing the catch-up game?
