Kickstarter project Brydge is an accessory that turns your iPad into a MacBook. It has an aluminum body, patent-pending hinge, speakers, keyboard, and more. With the project fully funded, it should enter production soon. Pledges are still being accepted, and $170 for the model without speakers or $210 with speakers will get you your own Brydge. What do you think about it?

Brydge is an elegant solution to the lack of quality iPad keyboards and accessories currently on the market. Made from aerospace-grade aluminum, with optional stereo speakers, Brydge connects to your iPad using a patent-pending hinge. This click-in hinge allows for close to 180 degrees of iPad positioning and holds your iPad secure.

The end of Android could be approaching, suggests Raymond James analyst Tavis McCourt. As noted by Forbes, McCourt estimates that Apple held a 59% grip on the smartphone market in the first quarter of 2012, compared to just 39% in the year-ago quarter. The iPhone continues to be a dominant force in the United States, with 4.3 million handsets activated on AT&T in the first quarter in addition to 3.2 million units on Verizon and 1.5 million units on Sprint in the same time period.

With the launch of the so-called “iPhone 5″ on the horizon, the momentum that Apple is experiencing is going to continue. McCourt believes that Google’s share of the smartphone market might have peaked, which means that it is likely to now continue declining. In his research note, McCourt says that Apple has “won the game,” at least in the American market, with the iPhone. Read on for his full opinion.

So, here’s a thought. Could it be the case that Google’s share of the smartphone market has peaked? That the phone-buying public simply is more inclined to choose Apple’s vertically integrated approach over the cacophony of the Android market?

Could it, in fact, be the case that, while Google and Microsoft can innovate and find niche markets for their mobile OS offerings, that Apple has basically won the game, at least for the U.S. market? There’s no question that Android-based devices are crushing the likes of Nokia and Research in Motion at the low-end of the market, rapidly killing off the feature phone market. But at the top of the heap, Apple is crushing it. And iPhone 5 is just months away.

Do you think that what McCourt is saying is true? Could the so-called “end of Android” really be approaching because of the iPhone’s dominance in the United States?

CUPERTINO, California—April 25, 2012—Apple® today announced that it will hold its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) June 11 through June 15 at San Francisco’s Moscone West. At this year’s five-day conference, developers will learn about the future of iOS and OS X®, allowing them to build incredible new apps. WWDC will also feature more than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers as well as the popular Apple Design Awards, a showcase of the most outstanding apps from the past year. 

“We have a great WWDC planned this year and can’t wait to share the latest news about iOS and OS X Mountain Lion with developers,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “The iOS platform has created an entirely new industry with fantastic opportunities for developers across the country and around the world.”

Developers will be able to explore the latest innovations, features and capabilities of iOS and OS X Mountain Lion and learn how to greatly enhance the functionality, performance, quality and design of their apps. Developers can even bring their code to the labs and work with Apple engineers, applying development techniques and best-practices to enhance their apps.

Activities at Apple’s WWDC 2012 include:

  • more than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers on a wide range of technology-specific topics for developing, deploying and integrating the latest iOS and OS X technologies;
  • 100 hands-on labs staffed by more than 1,000 Apple engineers providing developers with code-level assistance, insight into optimal development techniques and guidance on how they can make the most of iOS and OS X technologies in their apps;
  • the opportunity to connect with thousands of fellow iOS and OS X developers from around the world—last year more than 60 countries were represented;
  • engaging and inspirational lunchtime sessions with leading minds and influencers from the worlds of technology, science and entertainment; and
  • Apple Design Awards which recognize iPhone®, iPad® and Mac® apps that demonstrate technical excellence, innovation and outstanding design.

Please go to the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 2012 website (developer.apple.com/wwdc) to purchase tickets, as well as for updates and more information.

Developers who are unable to attend this year’s conference can access and watch all technical sessions from the Apple Developer website (developer.apple.com/videos) as soon as they are posted for free.

Even in the light of Facebook’s recent acquisition of the much-loved photo sharing service Instagram, third-party developers are still working on apps using the existing API. Yesterday, for instance, Eric Hoffman Design released a beautiful Instagram browsing app for the iPad called Iris. While it’s a shame you can’t publish any photos with the app, there’s no reason not to buy it if you like to browse photos by your friends.

At $1.99, Iris allows you to tap a photo to like or unlike it, share photos on Twitter by tapping it when it’s enlarged, comment on your friends’ photos, find new people to follow, browse the well-liked photos of Instagram, see the location on a map where the photo was taken, and oh so much more. The user interface alone is the most beautiful way to browse Instagram on any device, not just the iPad. So go give Iris a try today!
