Apple marketing boss bags Android, doesn't have a clue about the competitor's OS

Apple marketing chief, Paul Schiller, takes a stab at Android - gets it totally wrong

Samsung's Galaxy S IV is being launched in 24 hours, so it is about time Apple's marketing chief, Paul Schiller, came out on damage control. Because, you know, they make the devices that everyone else copies.




Well, the Apple marketing chief has had some interesting things to say about the Android user experience, and how it is not a pleasant experience. Schiller yet again attacked Android's continued fragmentation problems, describing it as "plain and simple". He took a big jab at Android, saying: "Android is often given as a free replacement for a feature phone and the experience isn't as good as an iPhone."


That wasn't all, Schiller also attacked Android for a lack of integrated software solutions - something I personally laughed out loud over - where he said:


When you take an Android device out of the box, you have to sign up to nine accounts with different vendors to get the experience iOS comes with. They don't work seamlessly together.


This is weird, because when I sign into a new smart device, I just type in my Google e-mail address and password and everything is synced. I wonder where those other eight accounts need to be signed into? Schiller, feel free to e-mail me and tell me where I'm going wrong, buddy.
