[April Fools] Apple iOS is Superior–XDA Changing Focus

ios-android-war-iphoneindiaHere at XDA-Developers, we pride ourselves on being able to eke out the absolute most performance and functionality from our mobile devices. And as Portal Administrator / Editor-in-Chief for the site, it is my duty and responsibility to ensure that this information is highlighted through our media outlets.

A month an a half ago, when the XDA Portal reached its second birthday, I took it upon myself to evaluate market standings and determine which platform(s) would have the most meaningful impact in the years to come. Through this, I came to a startling realization:

iOS is simply better than Android.

It is with great pleasure that I announce today our new (and improved) focus. Rather than wasting our time with inferior mobile OSes, we will simply concentrate on the best: Apple iOS. While other OSes have downright copied Apple, some resorting so far as to traveling back in time to the year 2000 to launch their products, we can only recognize Apple iOS as the true grandfather of everything smartphone. Furthermore, OSes like Android and Windows Phone simply lack the resources and efficiency to compete in the modern mobile market. HP’s webOS and Nokia’s Symbian showed promise, but even they are simply no match for the Apple juggernaut.

Now rather than talking about our past mistakes, let me present to you our new websites:

Thank you for your support and for making this transition a success. I look forward to a great year with iOS!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OK, you didn’t REALLY think that we’d give up Android and WP7 in favor of iOS did you? And you didn’t honestly believe that Google was hosting a second week of I/O or that we were shutting down our marketplace. And most of all, I really, really hope you didn’t step on your Gorilla Glass-laden tablet or smartphone and use it as a scale.

Happy April Fools Day, everyone! We hope you enjoyed our pranks. Here are some other notable April Fool’s Day Pranks seen across the web:

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?
