Apple May Lose To Android In Device-Based Media Management | TV Everywhere | Scoop.it

For Apple iPhone and iPad owners with an Apple TV, the AirPlay function is one of those you-have-to-see-this gadget showcases. A tap of an icon on a device sends the current video, audio or slide show playing on the AirPlay-ready compatible IOS app to your big-screen TV or home theater.

In fact another rumor told a tale of Google themselves delaying the product announcements. Google also announced that devs can start building apps for the platform using the normal Honeycomb SDK and that Google Market should hit the platform “soon.” Android 3.1 will hit Google TV this summer, but any changes were not announced. Still, we’re left wondering about Google TV’s future. It clearly looks more bright now than even at its much-hyped launch, but can Market access and 3.1 save one of Google’s more novel products?
