Google Brings Some Shine to iPhone and iPad, Announces Chrome for iOS
The Google I/O (Input/Output) 2012 Developer event is currently underway in San Francisco, CA. The event has been the showcase for some high profile announcements from the Internet giant. Mobility and cross platform compatibility seems to be a big theme coming out of the event.
The announcement will be a big win for chrome fans; the mobile browser will integrate with Google Sync, and will provide most of the functionality of the Chrome for desktop counterpart.
Cross platform compatibility is a good move for Google with its entire product line. By providing free applications that are not tied to individual devices, the potential for user adoption, and use increases. This speaks to a big change in the importance of specific hardware for businesses and consumers alike.
The time is very near when you will be able to sync your information, identity, applications, business, and personal accounts across any device, anywhere you are. The cloud and forward thinking companies are enabling this technology. Global access and communication will change the way businesses are run.
It is good to see companies like Google embracing cross platform compatibility. Considering Google could rightfully only make products for the Droid OS, it speaks to a changing environment, and smart thinking, to continue to be a dominant force in the market.
