Since its’ inception in 2008, Android has been making great strides in becoming a powerful and popular OS. Already, in the first quarter of 2010, Android sold more iPhones, and their numbers continue to grow. Even with all this, Android still lacks in the media department, specifically, a better way to organize your media.
At Google I/O in May, Google announced their new music service, Google music, to be released in the fall. However, It has been rumored that the music service was delayed due to lack of cooperation from the music labels. But, Google music is not the only one having problems, as Google TV has had issues convincing the four major broadcast companies to provide their content on their service.
Despite setbacks, companies partnered with Google TV will begin to sell TVs compatible with the service in the coming months, and Google music was delayed until Christmas of this year, to coincide with the release of the next Android build, 3.0 (Gingerbread).
Google music on Android 3.0 is definitely that push to make Android even more of a threat to the newest iPhone and Google TV integration would push it over the top. An app has already been released from Logitech for a Harmony Remote Control. This shows much promise as it might be the full Google experience people have been looking for, with Google Music and Google TV.
