First I start hearing whispers of the new iPhone being released in a month. Then Android releases Oreo the following day. The mobile OS race continues to heat up (pun intended), and I'm enjoying every moment of it.
I'll give Apple some credit. Potentially disposing of the 7S altogether is a bold move. After all, if you have the upgrades ready, why not release the better product? But I'm skeptical that they're not going to hit it out of the park with this one. Doesn't this whole thing seem a little rushed? - Especially after it was delayed.
I'll also give Google its fair share of credit. Not only is the ad for Oreo gorgeous, funny, and relevant, but bouncing back from recent hardware issues is no simple task. The fact that they're already creating buzz with the myriad of great new features proves they're in the race to win it.
I'm also teetering between the two. I am, and always have been, an iPhone user. There is a Google-loving geek inside of me that gets jealous of Android customers, though.
I can't wait to watch this market continue to unfold - especially since there are so many other potential competitors that can enter the space again.
