One of the greatest things packed in the arsenal of any Android Enthusiast as they prepare to fight the Android vs iPhone war is this little thing we take for granted called Google Apps or G-Apps for short.
You see, Apple has been offering this product called Mobile Me for years which costs just $99. It integrates your email, calendar, contacts, picture account etc in one neat little package that keeps it synced to your computer and your Apple i-device. Sound familiar? Well Android users have had this sine October 2008 and the first version of Android on the first Android device the HTC/T-Mobile G1.
Android, through the use of your Google Account, syncs your Gmail, contacts, picassa web albums, browsing history, etc and it does it all for free. Google Apps even allows you to sync multiple Google apps accounts, multiple contact lists and multiple calendars on one or 9 Android phones, the possibilities are limitless and free. They always have been.
Apple is believed to be holding a press event next month to discuss the newest full version of iOS along with the new version of MobileMe which is supposed to become free with the next release of iOS.
Wow 2 and a half years later and they are finally catching up to G-Apps but since it’s Apple we are sure Steve Jobs will say it’s “Magical”
