Before i start with the discussion the main thing i want to mention is iPhone is being targeted by each and every company out there........
Its like iPhone versus everyone else!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Google's Android is taking on the iPhone in an attempt to take iPhone's position, but it remains to be seen what the repercussions in the UK mobile industry will be. One thing is certain though,there is a huge growth in the field of mobile technology

I think that iPhone has to be competed by some one because the feature i dislike is its only provided to AT&T states!!!!. I have hesrd that 17 million customers switched for the sole purpose of owning the iPhone. That means more than 30 million of these devices in the hands of the public.This is surely a boost to its profit.........

Android is a low cost and an economic competitor to the iPhone, with limitless application possibilities, Android allows anyone to develop applications for it(Which is an awesome thinking by google..) making it a means for operators to tap into revenue from mobile advertising.But now thanks to google's new launch Android, all Cell phone users on non-AT&T networks will be happy.....

Now just check out the features of both Google android and iPhone..

1:-The Fastest iPhone Ever

The first thing you’ll notice about iPhone 3GS is how quickly you can launch applications. Web pages render in a fraction of the time, and you can view email attachments faster. Improved performance and updated 3D graphics deliver an incredible gaming experience, too. In fact, everything you do on iPhone 3GS is up to 2x faster and more responsive than iPhone 3G.

Now you can shoot video, edit it, and share it — all on your iPhone 3GS. Shoot high-quality VGA video in portrait or landscape. Trim your footage by adjusting start and end points. Then share your video in an email, post it to your MobileMe gallery, publish it on YouTube, or sync it back to your Mac or PC using iTunes.

3-Megapixel Camera:-The new 3-megapixel camera takes great still photos, too, thanks to built-in autofocus and a handy new feature that lets you tap the display to focus on anything (or anyone) you want.

3:-Voice Control

Voice Control recognizes the names in your Contacts and knows the music on your iPod. So if you want to place a call or play a song, all you have to do is ask.


With a built-in digital compass, iPhone 3GS can point the way. Use the new Compass app, or watch as it automatically reorients maps to match the direction you’re facing.

5:-Cut, Copy & Paste

Cut, copy, and paste words and photos, even between applications. Copy and paste images and content from the web, too.

6:-Landscape Keyboard

Want more room to type on the intelligent software keyboard? Rotate iPhone to landscape to use a larger keyboard in Mail, Messages, Notes, and Safari.

7:-Internet Tethering

Surf the web from practically anywhere. Now you can share the 3G connection on your iPhone with your Mac notebook or PC laptop.

8:-Nike + iPod

iPhone includes built-in Nike + iPod support. Just slip the Nike + iPod Sensor (available separately) into your Nike+ shoe and start your workout.

9:-Find My iPhone and Remote Wipe

If you misplace your iPhone, Apple’s MobileMe service can help you find it. Log on to to view a map that shows the approximate location of your iPhone. If it’s nearby, have it play an alert sound to help you find it. If it’s not, you can display a custom message, remotely lock it with a passcode, or initiate a remote wipe and restore it to factory settings.
