Google Strikes Back

Androids have been taking a bite out of Apple in the tablet market. Plus, some fave new apps.

Since the introduction of the iPhone in 2007 and the iPad in 2010, it seemed like no one could outsmart Apple. But Google, through a combination of good software, plenty of hardware partners, and eye-catching prices, has its Android army on the march. Droids now dominate the smartphone market, with a 59 percent share to iOS's 23 percent in Q1 of 2012, and have a healthy 32 percent of the tablet market. App developers can't afford to ignore numbers like that, and releasing apps on both platforms has become standard practice. The bottom line? Droids are here to stay-which could be good news for your district's budget.

    Duel of the Ironclads

    by Patrick O'Brien
