Fast paced growths and trends in the World Wide Web’s marketing field – manifested by the emergence of a wide range of competing platforms, varying mobile needs, and competing quality standards – are really causing both manufacturers and consumers alike. Making decisions in one’s digital life has probably never been as complicated.

One event that’s worth noting is the significant number of news organizations inclining themselves towards Samsun products that work with Google software. The Report further states that Wall Street Journal, the New York Times and USA Today will be offering software applications compatible with the Galaxy Tab, to be on sale later in the year.

According to Wall Street Live Journal Reports, these companies intend to expand readership among mobile users by going beyond the limitations of the Apple iPad. For one thing, periodicals aren’t so much of a priority in Apple. It doesn’t have a hub made especially for newspapers and magazines just like what they have for books. As a result, things become difficult for news organizations to sell subscriptions when it comes to selling subscriptions through the iPad. While Apple has been considering subscriptions, no one knows how long it’s going to take for them to get things done.

The inefficient Android payment system has made most of its devices suffer a bit, but people are hoping to see publishers resolving to find ways to go about this issue. If this happens, it’s going to be a big step for Android and its users vs. the inherent weaknesses of the iPad.

But right now it’s just too early to make a call. Apple iPads are still in demand, and the question is whether the Google Android counterpart is catching up in the consumer base race. The competition is there, but will it tip in favor of Andoird hard enough for news companies to stick to their plan?

As for consumers like you and me, we can only get so much from this healthy competition. It’s a bit confusing, but soon enough our options will be laid down on the table. By then you should already have your clear set of priorities ready, because at the end of the day, whether you’ll go for the Apple or the Android will depend on what meets your needs the most.
