Apple beats Google at European introduction

Written by Fuad Abazovic
apple

Google US first, EU and rest second
Apple is a controlling freak, Jobs is arrogant, iOS is closed but at least you get all the new stuff simultaneously in most parts of the world, if not all.

Fudzilla as a media with a lot of US readers have requested a code for beta of Google music and so far we were turned down twice. Google music is a US only beta and unless you register via US proxy, you won’t be considered. The same thing happened with Google maps navigation as US got it first, followed by UK, France and Germany while smaller European countries still don’t have it.

“Thanks for your interest in Music Beta by Google. Unfortunately, we had a limited number of invites available for press and will not be able to accommodate every request. However, you are welcome to apply for an invite here: http://music.google.com/about/.” Apple on the other hand, launches stuff like Google iClound and IOS 5 simultaneously for the whole world and Europe doesn’t gets left out. 

We won’t even start with Google android ROMs as it takes up to half of year to get a new one for you phone, unless you go for unofficial and unsupported Cyanogen and similar. On this matter, Apple clearly has an advantage over Google, especially for some 5.5 billion people who happen to live outside of USA.

Quoting Singularity:
The US has a population of more than a billion?


No 300 million, Us is a small market really compared to china, EU buys more phones than US, EU is richer than US so probably why and is ahead in widespread tech.
US have alot of high tech, but there is vast diffrences, while europe got a greater average level.

Apple doesnt launch everything everywhere at the same time, ipad used like 6 months to arrive here, right before ipad 2 arrived, ohh at the same time ? android is outselling iphone here now and we have the highest density of iphones per citizen in the world.

Just to clarify I know the US has a population of 300 million but the world population has been above 6 billion for more than a decade and we should reach 7 billion this year.

Not only is Fuad a major whiner he also sucks at maths. In the world there are roughly 6.9 billion people. Subtract 0.3 and you en up with 6.6, not 5.5.

But i guess the 1.1 billion Apple fans doesn't count as humans in Fuads brain.
