IPhone, Android: Beware of John’s Phone

IPhone and Android are in a fierce battle, John doe comes into the picture.    Not a funny movie, just a simple cell phone makes its way to the European markets.

Designed by Dutch creative agency John Doe Amsterdam, John’s Phone comes unlocked in a plain vanilla design, nothing fancy.  Frills like a camera, text messaging  and wide range of ringtones are not there. a down-to-earth device.

Try to compare it to the sophisticated tech of IPhone or Android!

Rather, John’s Phone features are limited to calling receiving, large keys, volume control, locking capabilities, a hands-free earphone and a speed-dial function — which makes it a good fir  for children.  On the back of the device, meanwhile, is a flap containing an address book and a pen — features John Doe figures might appeal to older users.

John’s Phone is available in five colors, and it’s compatible with any type of SIM card around the world. It also supports global roaming, except on the 3G networks in South Korea and Japan. With a standby time of more than three weeks, John’s Phone is a bit pricey, at EUR 79.95 for all colors except white, which is EUR 69.95.

Competition comes in all colors to IPhone and Android.

The latest quarterly smartphone results  from market research firm comScore, surprisingly, Google‘s Android platform continues to capture market share while everyone else stands still
According to comScore, smartphone usage is up 18 percent in the latest quarter, sitting just shy of 43 million users. And while Google’s Android OS sits in fourth place behind RIM, Apple, and Microsoft, it’s the only one with a significant trend upwards. 


As comScore puts it, “Google’s Android platform continues to see rapid gains in market share,” which might be an understatement. By contrast, Apple remained stagnant for the quarter, while Microsoft tumbled backwards by nearly the same pace as Android moved forward.

This isn’t really all that surprising, given that all four major wireless carriers in the U.S. now carry Android phones. Apple’s iPhone, on the other hand, is still only available through AT&T, a strategy Apple may want to rethink if it hopes to maintain its lead over most of the competition.
