What is MOV?
The MOV file format is a common file extension compatible with both Windows
and Mac operating systems and is designed by Apple, primarily for the QuickTime
Movie Player. Quicktime is a multimedia development, storage, and playback
technology from Apple. MOV files, or QuickTime Movies, are digital videos
stored in the codec developed by Apple Computers. The advantage of MOV
files is the ability to contain abstract data references for the media
data. That means that they can be easily edited - no need to rewrite all
media data after editing. If you want to play MOV files on your computer,
you'll have to download Apple's own Quicktime player from its website.
MOV files are used by Apple Quicktime player, which is a specific video
player for Apple. So, if you have a video on an IPOD type device that ends
in ".mov", or if you have such a file on your computer, it may
not be compatible with other types of players, especially simpler ones.
In order to use a MOV file in a player that needs a more compatible format
such as MPEG, you must do a conversion. The ability to contain abstract
data references for the media data, and the separation of the media data
from the media offsets and the track edit lists means that QuickTime is
particularly suited for editing, as it is capable of importing and editing
in place (without data copying). QuickTime was developed by Apple for use
as a standard media application for the Mac operating system. The multimedia
container files store audio, video, text and more for specific use with
the Mac operating system. Though MOV files are quite often found in the
web, to play them on Windows computer one has to install an extra component
or convert to other format.
What is Android?
Android is a software bunch comprising not only operating system but also
middleware and key applications. Android Inc was founded in Palo Alto of
California, U.S. by Andy Rubin, Rich miner, Nick sears and Chris White
in 2003. Later Android Inc. was acquired by Google in 2005. After original
release there have been number of updates in the original version of Android.
Some handsets use multicore processors, which are more useful for "power
users" who need their phones to run multiple simultaneous operations.
Android devices boot to the homescreen, the primary navigation and information
point on the device, which is similar to the desktop found on PCs. Android
homescreens are typically made up of app icons and widgets; app icons launch
the associated app, whereas widgets display live, auto-updating content
such as the weather forecast, the user's email inbox, or a news ticker
directly on the homescreen. A homescreen may be made up of several pages
that the user can swipe back and forth between. Speculation about Google's
intention to enter the mobile communications market continued to build
through December 2006. Reports from the BBC and The Wall Street Journal
noted that Google wanted its search and applications on mobile phones and
it was working hard to deliver that. Print and online media outlets soon
reported rumors that Google was developing a Google-branded handset. Some
speculated that as Google was defining technical specifications, it was
showing prototypes to cell phone manufacturers and network operators. In
September 2007, InformationWeek covered an Evalueserve study reporting
that Google had filed several patent applications in the area of mobile
