How Much Do You Know About Phones Using The Android OS?

By Gary Parks

If you keep current with the mobile market news you already know that the Android OS is quickly catching up to the Blackberry and the iPhone in terms of its popularity. This is partly due to the fact that the Android OS is used in a lot of different phones. It is also because this operating system is constantly being developed and upgraded and it is finally becoming competitive with the other smart phones that are on the market. Unlike the other major smart phone competitors (iPhones and Blackberries), the Android (aka “Google”) phones are varied and come in many different styles with systems that vary in extensiveness. Here are some interesting facts about Android and Google phones that you might not already know.

Advertisers are more likely to advertise on phones that use the Android OS. This probably doesn’t surprise you. The Google advertising network is huge and spreads all over the internet. Are you really surprised to learn that advertisers would want the same extensiveness afforded to them on a mobile level? Google is famous for its advertising. You shouldn’t be startled if you start having to deal with ads on your phone from time to time.

People who don’t like their iPhone handsets are pretty much out of luck. If you aren’t a fan of the Blackberry headset there are a few other basic options available to you. If you don’t like your current headset on your Android phone you have a bunch of other options to choose from. Google phones are your best bet if you like having lots of choices available to you. You will have these choices because all of the major phone manufacturers are starting to adopt the Android OS for their phones so, no matter what kind of handset you like, you’ll find a Google phone that fits it.

You ave lots of options if you want to listen to and buy music through the Android OS phone. Perhaps the biggest perk of owning an iPhone is its access to the iTunes store and library. That does not mean that you cannot have the same accessibility with a Google phone. There are plenty of free music apps available for Android phones. Others connect to various music sales sites in a way that is a lot like the way that the iPhone connects to the iTunes marketplace. So don’t believe anyone who tells you that you can only use music if you have an iPhone.

Choosing one’s next cell phone used to be easy. You probably simply took whatever upgrade you could get for free from your cell phone provider. Now you are more likely to choose a provider based on the types of phones it offers. The good news is that, for smart phone fans, the Android OS lets you have the phone you want without having to take the provider into consideration. Doesn’t that news make you glad?
