The Acer Inc. founder Stan Shih recently stated in interview with Taiwan’s Chinese language United Daily News that Android will likely beat and outdo Apple within the very near future.
Since Intel and Google have come closer together, and with the potential ability of Atom powered Android devices, Stan Shin thinks that it will be a alliance in harmony creating better solutions that will benefit Android with better speed and performance optimization. Stan Shih also suggests that Atom powered Android devices will more than likely outsell Apple products to the extent of it leading towards PC development.
Stan Shih’s suggestions that Android will eventually outsell and beat Apple is a contrast to what Michael Dell seems to suggest recently – Michael Dell: Android "Not Developed To The Expectations" – No More Dell Android Devices?. The Intel and Android alliance is a very important one that has potential’s beyond the Smartphone and tablet boundary’s, this could bring Android widespread into home’s as the operating system that is on all platforms with Atom processor’s especially bringing products such as UltraBooks that have touchscreen’s being a very big possibility.
Google Innovations and leading way in technology development has got the Acer Inc Founder impressed and seeing the big picture going forward. Android is still a young platform and now with Intel onboard it is a very big step forward just as Stan Shih has stated here in this interview that Android is the future big player.
