Apple and presentation of the iPhone 5 are taking all eyes on this day, although there is also space for news about the Android world. According to Hugo Barra, Google’s Android operating system took its presence more than 500 million devices worldwide .
It’s a stunning figure demonstrating steady growth of the software developed in Mountain View. Official statistics also indicate that each day are activated 1.3 million Android gadgets. The increase in these numbers is clear. Until February, for example, there were 300 million devices with Google’s OS, with 850,000 sold daily. late June-in Google I/O- total OS computers of the “Big G” was 400 million globally, while activations per day reached 1 million. In the last three months the drastic increase in the number of Android devices was caused by two devices: Samsung Galaxy S III and Nexus 7
, Google’s tablet fabricated with Asus. Comparisons are odious, but to put into context the importance of the 500 million Android devices, you have to focus on its main competitor. Until July this year sold 410 million iOS gadgets, but this number tends to explode after the presentation of new devices.
Many Internet users were surprised this morning to read about a new Google service called What do you love , which translated into Castilian would be “What do you like?”. The idea of Mountain View is to create a new model for finding search engine results on all platforms the company, but using only one page.
The truth is that rather surprised the genesis of this product especially since it has not received much broadcast
on the company. This is, perhaps, still is not polished hundred percent, but is a tool that invites you to take it into account. After the jump we tell them more about it. The main objective of What do you love? is simple: users find faster what they like to surf the web. In my case, I wrote “football” in the search box and presented me with a variety of results: Picasa albums, news, books, groups, translations, videos on YouTube, Google Maps locations, blogs, and more.
Anyway, we should also mention that through this new service, Mount View are opening a very strong strategy of product placement . Just to be mentioned that the platform is quite interesting, although it has yet to note that quite polished. What do you love? has only a few hours of life so we’ll see if new features are added over time. In the meantime, if you want to try this tool can do syndicated search entering this link .
