Mobile gadgets strategy from Schmidt includes switching advice

The Google chairman has offered recommendations for Apple customers who want to convert to Android.

Eric Schmidt, the chairman of Google, has left one of his rare posts on his Google+ account, in the form of a recommendation for consumers regarding the way in which they can switch their mobile gadgets from Apple to Android.

The post was designed in the form of a comprehensive guide for leaving iOS and its products behind.

Within the mobile gadgets switching post, Schmidt explained that “The latest high-end phones […] have better screens, are faster, and have a much more intuitive interface. They are a great Christmas present to an iPhone user!” From that point, he went on to outline, step by step, the ways in which iPhone users can transfer their data over to an Android device.

Apple vs Android mobile gadgetsThe advice for changing over the mobile gadgets included simple security procedures and browser switching.

The process involved a two-step verification that he recommended that the users always employ, as well as a transfer to the Chrome web browser. This post came as quite a shock to the industry, as there has not been anything like it created by Schmidt in the past. He has never been someone who is known for his heavy participation in the social network at Google, and this quite sudden and very long post looks as though it has been exceptionally carefully created.

The social media marketing ploy involves not only a description of how to join the Android environment with step by step instructions, but it also provides directions with regards to exporting a user’s data from iCloud and into the new Android operating system. He added that “Many of my iPhone friends are converting to Android,” though it is not clear how many of that group would actually have read that Google+ post to find the necessary directions.

Many are predicting that this may actually become the first in a series of “how to” style posts regarding the use of mobile gadgets. They believe that consumers would be open to reading Eric Schmidt’s guides for accomplishing various goals with their smartphones.
