Android vs iPhone [Code Performance]

It looks like Android still has some kinks needing ironing out, at least if they want to attract even more developers.

In a very simple test, to try to assess its code performance Android's Java was about 100 times slower than the same code running on an iPhone.
(And before anyone starts taking me out of context: remember I'm saying: 'a  very simple test'! And I'm referring just to the Java VM code - not Android's API functions and routines.)

Although this doesn't mean you can't develop very interesting applications (just take a look at whole those already out there) it may certainly drive a few of them away because they'll be unable to implement "high-performance" routines.

I'm curious to see if Google will address this "problem" in the upcoming revisions and firmware updates.

  1. It will help too once Android devices pump up the RAM to at least a GB.
