The question on every tech savvy mind lately is who is going to win the tablet operating system battle. There are fairly limited options, and because of this, the battle is extremely heated. This battle is very similar to the one that continues to wage in desktop and laptop computers between Apple and Microsoft. The main players in the tablet battle consist of Apple and Android.
Many people are strongly for one side of the battle or the other. Those who choose the iPad are usually fans of Apple products in general. Those who choose Android tablets are usually not as impressed with Apple, and instead like more open source software.
When considering who will win the battle of the tablet operating systems, there are many things to take into account. For example, Apple products tend to be more expensive than Android products. On the other hand, Apple has a much more world-wide known brand. Because of this, many people who track trends feel that Apple will win the war. Having a well-known brand name means a lot in this day and age.
Realistically, there is no way to know who will eventually win the war. Some feel that Android will win, while others think that Apple’s staying power will win in the end. The two operating systems are currently very close, though Apple is slightly ahead of Android.
Of course, there is also the possibility that one of the other operating systems, or even one that we haven’t yet heard of, will emerge and take the lead.
