A recent survey of over 2,700 mobile developers revealed that devs universally prefer developing for iOS (formerly iPhone OS – renamed iOS recently, as it is now used on the iPad). Apple ranks #1 in mobile phone market share, and there are more than a few stories of small-time devs creating apps for the iPhone that took off overnight, so it really isn’t all that surprising that Apple was a dev favorite.

It seems the battle between HTC and Apple isn’t going to end anytime soon. Apple has filed a new lawsuit against HTC which includes four patents – however, only two of them are new. The other two were also included in the previous lawsuit, but needed minor corrections and were instead included in the new suit. The two new patents are actually very closely related, with the newer one being a continuation of the other.

If you’ve been paying attention to the news releases regarding the HTC Aria, you know that AT&T will once again be locking down the apps users can install by restricting unofficial app downloading. If you’ve been paying attention for a while now, you also know that they did the same thing to the Motorola Backflip – the only other Android phone they offer.

Both phones already feature smaller, lower def screens, when compared to their Android brethren available on other networks.

Apple iOS 3 & 4 VS Android 2.1

In This Corner!

For better or worse Apple has dropped their latest update regarding the groundbreaking iPhone this week along with the official release date for their next version of the phone’s operating system, which has now been dubbed ‘iOS’.

Apple iOS 3 & 4 VS Android 2.1 "Eclair" & 2.2 "Froyo": Fight!

A big thanks to Ian Douglas for all the work he did putting the chart together, and to my fiancee for the image

The announcement comes on the heels of last Friday’s uber-successful launch of the Sprint EVO 4G, which shares many of the same features with the new iPhone.

During NVIDIA’s quarterly earnings call last week, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang announced that they would be focusing specifically on Android powered devices with the second generation of their Tegra chipset.

The Tegra platform is a S.O.C. or ‘system-on-a-chip’, which means that it integrates the CPU, GPU, northbridge, southbridge and memory controller onto a single chip. At the moment most Android handsets are using S.O.C’s developed by Qualcomm – you may have been hearing a lot about the Snapdragon recently, which is one of Qualcomm’s more popular chipsets.

It looks like the patent war between Apple and HTC is beginning to heat up. Apple fired the opening shot two months ago when they filed suit against HTC, claiming they infringed on a number of their patents, and until today, things kept fairly quiet. However, as expected, HTC won’t give up with out a fight, and has retaliated by filing their own patent suit with the ITC asking that all imports and sales of iPhones, iPads and iPods be halted.

Since the launch of the Motorola Droid in the fall of 2009, the market share of the Android OS has been steadily on the rise, and it has only been a question of when, not if it would actually overtake the iPhone in sales.

After all, with dozens of Android handsets now flooding the market, how long can the iPhone possibly stay on top?

The answer to when came today, when NPD, a consumer market research group, reported smartphone sales results for Q1 of 2010.

Last Updated: April 2nd, 2011

Details are being kept internally between team members right now but what we do know is that the CyanogenMod has been ported onto an iPhone 3GS.

Everyone is pretty tight lipped for now but this seems so far to be legitimate, as one of the team members has confirmed the port is working via twitter.

It was only a few days ago when reports surfaced of the Android OS having been ported onto the iPhone 2G which was crazy enough to hear but now the advent of CyanogenMod on the 3GS is almost downright insane.

You can’t say you didn’t see it coming! Adobe have officially given up on any kind of development efforts for Flash and Flash tools for the iPhone, just days after announcing that a public beta of Flash is planned for Android.

After months of trying to convince Apple to allow Flash on the iPhone OS, Adobe banked big on its ‘Packager for iPhone’ application which was supposed to ship with the CS5 suite released a few days ago.
