I read recently that Google's Android OS was suffering as a whole because of the varying devices it is on and the 4 versions (or so) of it that are out there and the latency between the carriers and handset manufacturers pushing out updates to the latest version. They are proposing that they will break the key apps from the OS (Maps, Browser, etc) and make them available through the Android Market so that they can push updates that way without affecting the core OS too much... The iBooks app isn't a default app on the iPad and that's so that they can push upgrades quicker than pushing an OS update every time... If you haven't figured out the connection yet here it is: Do you think Apple has already thought of this and are planning to release the apps that are normally on the iPhone that aren't on the iPad to the app store? I don't know... it's just a thought. Thoughts?
