Was an Googles Android stinkt

In meinem Kollegenkreis gibt es genau eine Person, die kürzlich von einem iPhone zu einem Android-Gerät von Samsung gewechselt ist. Ich bin gespannt, wie Kollege Zgräsch das Produkt sechs Monate nach dem Kauf bewerten wird.

Kritische Zeitgenossen im Web lassen nichts Gutes für die Plattform erwarten:

It’s almost like a warning sign: you’re buying a platform that will nickel-and-dime you with ads and undeletable bloatware, and it starts with those 99 cents. And that damn rebate form they’re hoping you don’t send in.

Windows Phone, ein Rundungsfehler

Compared with Android which is activating half a million devices per day, Windows Phone seems like a rounding error.

Der (frappante) Unterschied zwischen Google und Apples Geschäftsmodellen

Google: Thanks for looking at 100s of ads you hate. Apple: Thanks for buying 100s of dollars of stuff you love.

iPhone vs. Android: It just works vs. Sysadmin

But since it wasn’t my first, I come to it (and maybe more importantly to the operating system) with expectations of performance, stability, battery life, and general attention to detail that it just can’t meet. Sure, it comes with a whole host of freedoms that I can exercise, like installing a third-party keyboard component to replace the system keyboard, but I didn’t exercise those freedoms because I don’t care, I’m just not that guy. I never themed my Windows installations, never jailbroke my iPhone, never turbocharged my car. I want a phoneputer that just works and lets me pursue my own goals; goals that don’t include being a sysadmin.

Ein weiterer Punkt für Android im Kampf gegen Apple

… natürlich nicht:

It’s pretty sad that the only way to enjoy an android phone is to hack the crap out of it, and doing so requires relative technical expertise.

Apple scheint der einzige Smartphone-Hersteller zu sein, der begriffen hat, dass die Mobilfunkunternehmen in Ketten gelegt werden müssen. Und diese Bändigung auch wirklich geschafft hat.

Für all die verblendeten Open Source-Fans, die mit Android ein neues Zeitalter anbrechen sahen, zum Schluss noch dies:

But, the consequence of not putting any walls around your product is that both the good guys and the bad guys can do anything they want with it. And for Android, that means that it’s being manipulated, modified, and maimed by companies that care more about preserving their old business models than empowering people with the next great wave of computing devices.

Android wird wohl für immer ein Nischenprodukt bleiben

One problem I see is that Google is making a bet on those same vendors who are now squeezed in the middle of that last pie chart: Samsung, LG, Motorola and Sony Ericsson. Nokia, Apple and RIM will certainly not take the OS over what they already have as it dilutes their differentiation and margins. That means Android is aligned with the biggest losers in the industry.

… In other words, Android’s licensees won’t have the profits or the motivation to spend on R&D so as to make exceptionally competitive products at a time when being competitive is what matters most.
