iPhone vs. Google Android Phone (Intermediate)

Sep. 1, 2010

iPhone vs. Google Android Phone (Intermediate)

Key Learning Points (Preview):

销售(xiāoshòu): n. sale

 

消费(xiāofèi): v. to consume

 

For Android, a mobile operating system developed by Google, the year of 2010 has been explosive. The global "销售(xiāoshòu) sales" of Apple's iPhone have been overtaken by the multitude of phones using Google's Android system in the second quarter. The Android system has become the third most popular operating system of  "智能手机(zhìnéng shǒujī) smart mobile phones."

Android is getting popular in China now and is also easier for Chinese people to use. Compared with iPhone, the open platform of Android is more in accord with the "消费(xiāofèi) consuming" habits in China. iPhone users can only "下载(xiàzǎi) download" applications through the Apple Store, but it is more difficult for Chinese people to use the iPhone because they are more sensitive to pricing and do not often use international credit cards. However, Android has provided more ways for Chinese people to download applications and "软件(ruǎnjiàn) software" through Android's Market Place, which is open to all developers. Considering how vital access to applications is to users of smart mobile phones around the world, it is no wonder that Android is now gaining ground in China as well as in the rest of the world.

Key Learning Points:

销售(xiāoshòu): n. sale

 

Example:
   Tīngshuō nǐmen gōngsī jīnnián de xiāoshòu yèjì  tèbié hǎo.
A:  听说       你们    公司     今年   的     销售    业绩  特别 好。

 

I heard that the sales of your company were very good this year.

   Shì a, míngtiān wǒmen yào yì qǐ qìngzhù ne.
B:是 啊,明天      我们     要 一 起  庆祝     呢。

 

Yes, we will celebrate it tomorrow.

消费(xiāofèi): v. to consume

 

Example:
   Nín hǎo, nín běncì zǒnggòng xiāofèile wǔbǎi yuán. Huānyíng xià cì zài lái.
A: 您 好,您    本次    总共        消费了    500    元。      欢迎    下 次 再 来。

 

Hello, you have consumed a total of 500 Yuan this time. Please come again.

    Hǎo de, xièxiè.
B:  好 的,谢谢。

 

Okay, thanks.
