What to Expect From Android in 2014? by B

We all witnessed how great the year 2013 was for Google’s Android. Many high-end Android smartphones got launched and acknowledged well by the users in the market. The demand for Android smartphones has been so high that unsurprisingly Android captured 80% share of the smartphone market by November 2013.

Not just the smartphone manufactures came up with various high-end devices, but even Google introduced many updated versions of Android. The most prominent being the launch of KitKat Version 4.4 on October 31, 2013 and the incremental update of Jelly Bean from version 4.2 to 4.3.

Now, as the year 2013 is closing down so it’s time to make some predictions regarding what we, the end users, can expect from Android on 2014.

Google I/O Releases

As you probably know, Google organizes an annual developer-focused conference known as Google I/O, where it makes announcements of updates for Chrome OS, Android, Google Chrome and its other services.

In the conference for 2013 that happened during May, Google did make some announcements regarding its 2014 plan. It is interesting that this year Google seemed less focused on Android as compared to the previous year. It is likely to gaze more on its other properties. So in the initial months of 2014, there will not be as such major advances happening to Android.

Android Update

Jelly Bean had the largest number of incremental updates as compared to other versions of Android. So, if this same trend is likely to continue in the year 2014 as well then we can expect some incremental updates of KitKat. As far as the launch of a complete new version of Android sporting a new desert name is conserved then most likely we have to wait for a longer time as KitKat got launched towards the end of 2013.

Better Apps

Updates of the Android and Google Apps are highly expected in 2014. As there are all possibilities that Google will definitely bring some innovation and newness to its apps in order to keep its customer base delighted. In this competitive market, customers are continuously looking for something better and latest. Also, the expected app updates are likely to be independent of Android OS updates. It simply means that we don’t have to wait for the new version of KitKat to get launched to get some new feature in our Gmail or You Tube app.

Taking up New Territories

Android is likely to focus more on new territories like watches, mobile gaming consoles and others. Now, this depends on the manufacturing brands like Samsung, HTC, Motorola, Sony and others that how they are going to utilize or improvise the Android platform to come up with more appealing products or new features in the existing products. However, there is no denial that the market for smartphones, tablets and notebooks is getting very competitive and manufacturing brands are doing their best to become more innovative.

Another interesting aspect is that KitKat got launched in 2013 but we had just one smartphone i.e. Nexus 5 running on this OS. In 2014 as new phones with Android 4.4 version will be coming up so it will be interesting to see that how different brands will explore KitKat 4.4.


How Smartphones Have Changed The World?

Nobody still can tell which smartphone works best or popular than the other. The long war is still on debate up to now among mobile fanatics. A helpful analysis would be to check on the range of knowledge on smartphones and, also, the type of buyer in people today. According to the Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIPR) survey, dated June 2012 to June 2013, thirty-seven percent (37%) of mobile buyers, who had never spent buying a smartphone before owning a Samsung phone, have found the brand more popular than others (Apple iPhone5, Blackberry, HTC and Motorola.) Such said is higher than the twenty-six percent (26%) people using Apple mobile phones.

Yet, Apple was not quick to beat. The CIPR also have shown that the new generation these days actually has changed their smartphonepreferences, from Samsung to using and buying Apple phones. To which, I.T. experts believed to be a very sudden shift in the technology industry, considering the very high price that Apple phones offer to consumers. The said group of new generation people is from the richer class of society, who carries good education and earns more income compared to the buyers of Samsung phones. In addition, twenty-percent (20%) of this group are the ones who previously use Samsung then switched to owning an Apple iPhone 5.

Then in July 2012, there was a quick come back by Samsung, using a strategy that boosted its performance greater than Apple and other smartphones in the technology industry. This took place during the time that sales on Apple phones plummeted to fourteen percent (14%.) Also, at this point, the brand is seen at its weakest point, in the last three (3) years. Samsung covered more marketshare and was able to produce double the usual number of handsets. What happened? A top reason was the “lacklustre” of iPhone 5 sales and exceeding competitive brands beside from Samsung like Blackberry, HTC and Motorola.
