As the Samsung Galaxy S4, which is likely to be the most popular selling smart phone for the summer, is being announced tomorrow in New York, we find that Apple's senior vice president of marketing Phil Schiller just can't help but talk about Android. Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Schiller once again brings up the fragmentation argument, along with some dubious accusations about integration of services.
When you take an Android device out of the box, you have to sign up to nine accounts with different vendors to get the experience iOS comes with. They don't work seamlessly together.
Something tells me Mr. Schiller has never used an Android device.
Of course, company executives are going to talk smack every once in a while, especially on the eve of a major announcement from the competitors. And people reading it are going to overreact and say more outlandish things. It's pretty good entertainment, but I'm going to have to side with Rene over at iMore and say let the phones and tablets do the talking. There is room for more than one monopolistic evil giant in the mobile race.
