AndroidがiPhoneを制する11の方法

techrader.com:11 ways Android will kick the iPhone's ass
Start quaking in your boots, Steve. Or support some more stuff, up to you


T-Mobile G1の発表とともに,Androidが登場した.
このHTC製の携帯は,マルチタッチではないものの使いやすい.

So Android has arrived with the announcement of the T-Mobile G1. The HTC-manufactured phone certainly has a few nice touches, despite its lack of multi-touch (and with T-Mobile's particular variant, no accelerometer).

しかしこの特徴的な端末は,ポテンシャルはあるものの,このままではiPhoneを制して王にはなれないだろう.
OSは非常に盛り上がっている.
なぜAndroidがiPhoneの本当の脅威となりうるかを示す.

But while this particular handset might not be the technology king to beat the iPhone, the potential's there. And the OS looks super-hot. Here's why Android can make its presence felt and could really threaten the iPhone.

1. iPhoneよりオープンである
Androidは全てオープンOSであり,自由に開発が出来る.
つまり,フリーのアプリやゲームをiPhoneのApp Store以上に提供できる.
Googleのようにネットワークやコンテンツプロバイダから提供ができるからだ.

1. It's more open
Android is a fully open OS, which means that developing for it is a free-for-all. Handily, that'll mean more free apps and games than the iPhone's App Store can throw at us currently as they'll be offered by networks, content providers and Google alike.

2.オンラインアプリの統合
Googleはこれに注力している.
よりよいGoogle Docs, Google talk, Google Calendar, Street ViewをAndroidベースの端末で使う事ができるようになるだろう.
しかもこれらは全てサインインするだけなのだ.

2. It's got integration with online apps
Google is heavily involved here. We'll get better versions of handy stuff like Google Docs, Talk and Calendar plus Street View mapping on Android-based handsets. And it all comes with a single sign-on.

3.より高速,高速,高速
我々はこの一年Androidを見てきたが,非常に速い.
先週のGoogle Developer DayとG1を手にした現在,
インタフェースはiPhoneのように,小さなバグに影響されていない.

3. It's faster, faster, faster
One thing we've seen with Android all year is that it's incredibly fast. In the tech demo at last week's Google Developer Day and now we've got hands on with the G1, the interface doesn't suffer from the recent glitches the iPhone 2.0 firmware has.

4.良いハードウェア
iPhoneはハイテクなハードを使っている.しかし,HSDPAや高画質カメラなどの機能が大規模になってしまう.
Androidにそれを加えれば,iPhoneが追いかけてくるようになる.

4. Better hardware
The iPhone is high tech hardware, but it remains that phones with features such as HSDPA and better digital cameras appeal to the masses. Add in Android, and the iPhone will be playing catchup.

5.もっと多くのバージョン
Appleはいつも一つのサイズで全てに適応させる.
iPhoneもハードウェア面で例外ではない.(容量の面でも)
Androidは高価格なものと同じで,低価格なものが作れる.

5. There'll be more variants
Apple has always been a bit one-size-fits-all. And the iPhone is no different in terms of the hardware (the capacity aside, of course). Android will be available in cheap mobiles as well as expensive ones, and that can only be a good thing.

6.Flash
JobsがFlashは携帯には重すぎると考えたからだろうか?
Android用Flashの開発にそう時間がかかるとは思わない.
それと同時期に,ウェブはFlashを使うようになるぜ,Steve?

6. It'll have Flash
So Steve Jobs reckons Flash is too intensive for mobile use? We don't think it'll be too long before somebody develops a version for Android. In the meantime, websites use Flash, Steve. Get over it.

7.Appleのニュアンスに縛られない
6.で書いたように,多くのAndroid携帯はiPhoneが設けている制限には縛られない.
(ネットワークでどのように動作するかもだ)
多くの拡張性が多くのファンを呼ぶ.

7. It won't be restricted by Apple's nuances
Following on from number 6, many Android phones won't be locked down in the same way that the iPhone is (although how this plays out with networks remains to be seen). More flexibility could mean more fans.

8.正当なキーボードを持てる
我々はiPhoneのキーボードになれてしまったが,
やはりこれは現実的ではなく-小さすぎる.
T-Mobile G1のQWERTYキーボードは現実的だ.

8. You can have proper keyboards
We're pretty used to typing with the iPhone's keyboard now, but for many it's a step too far – and too small. The QWERTY slider keyboard on the T-Mobile G1 is the real deal.

9.多くのフォーマットのサポート
多くのフォーマットをサポートすることで,Appleで不満の多い部分にアピールできる.
新たなファンを呼ぶ事も出来る.

9. It'll have better format support
Wider support for different formats will appeal to those frustrated by Apple's restricted model. And bring a whole load of new fans to Android.

10.Jailbreakの必要がない
ハック?
Andoidでは必要ない.
(もう一度言うが,ネットワークでどのように振る舞うかはわからないが)
カスタマイズは普通となり,例外ではない.
Jailbreak?何ですかそれは?

10. You won't need to jailbreak
Hacking? It'll be expected with Android (though, once again, we don't know how this will play out with the networks). Customisation will be the norm, rather than the exception. Jailbreaking? What's the point?

11.制限されないアプリ
AppleはApp Storeからいくつかのアプリを削除した.
殺人物の大人コミックもだ.
Androidではそれほどの制限はないだろう.

11. Unrestricted apps
Apple has banned several apps from the App Store, including the Murderdome adult comic. You won't get so many restrictions with Android.
