Android fans are joining on a silent movement against Apple called #BoycottApple on Google+. More and more furious comments are coming from them. Google-centric social networking sites have also joined on this protest. It is now the 2nd most favorite trending topic on Google+. Some reactions are also coming from Twitter users. Though the numbers may not be so huge in terms of real users but yet can be influential.
You already know that yesterday Apple was granted preliminary injunction by a US court against Samsung over sales of its Galaxy Nexus smartphones in the US. The decision comes days after an injunction was granted against sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Apple tried with four patents but ultimately succeeded with Patent number 8,086,604 which refers to a device searching multiple sources through a single interface (much like Siri).
Google fans are extremely annoyed with this injunction. They have created a movement on Google+ saying all the evil mentality of Apple that can also hurt the Apple fans. People are sharing anti Apple posters & reacting on this ban. Some are also pointing out the features that Apple copied from Android. Last year the war was more like corporate or industry war. The recent injunction opens the door for a probable silent war between the Apple & Android fans.
Apple fans have also joined on the anti-Apple movement. #iloveapple movement is also trending not like #BoycottApple though.
Last week Google confirmed about its new mobile operating system to be landed on Nexus. It is also the first smartphone that will receive the new update. Early reviews say the Android Jelly Bean makes the Galaxy Nexus run smoother. Who knows Apple might have won this time against Google and its followers on smartphone battle.
