iMessage to Kill SMS and BBM

leave a comment »

There is a hype on Apple’s conference. Few days ago, I thought that only iCloud that will be the next killer application from Apple. But, after the WWDC keynote is over, Techcrunch wrote that there are long list of excitement that had been announced.

As one of the core new features highlighted today in iOS 5, iMessages has one purpose: to kill SMS. That is, traditional carrier-controlled text messages. iMessages will do this by replacing SMS with a service that Apple is in control of across all of their iOS devices. And here’s the real death blow: iMessages will be completely free.

iMessages maybe succeed to kill SMS. The most important weapon is that, imessages will be completely free. I Think, iMessage will go further. It will not only kill SMS but also kill the BBM (Blackberry Messenger)

start form nothing in 2004, android become promising mobile operating system in 2010. some analysis said that will overthrow its older brothers, Windows Mobile, Symbian, and Apple next year. CNN said, this is android sensation. another phenomenon, the application proliferate on a very high rate growth. this is actually the open source nature, when the freedom to develop give the strength to beat the giant.

According to recent statistics from, the Android Marketplace saw 9,331 new mobile applications added to its app store during the month of March, 2010. This number is even more phenomenal when you look at the Android Marketplace’s historical growth. In December of last year, for example, there were 3,807 new applications added to the Android app store. By January, 4,458 more were added. In February, 5,532 arrived. And now, 9,331. If this trend continues, we could possibly see a month this year where the number of new applications tops 5 digits. And with numbers like this, Android could soon give Apple a run for its money.

the growth is phenomenal. CNET said that the growth show the big potential of android as mobile operating system. but such a high rate proliferation of android apps not always bring good implication as CNN said:

For users, it means apps in the store could be buggy, might not work well depending on their handsets, and could deliver a frustrating experience.

so, be careful android. despite the growth is phenomenon, frustrating experience is also the next possibility.
