Re: Android is No. 1 OS for Smartphones Now

It is a real achievement for the American giant when we know that there are still three years the world of mobile telephony was unknown. Google has introduced into this market by acquiring start-up Android in November 2007 and since nothing could hinder its ascent not even the failure of the Nexus One. Android's success is partly explained by two phenomena. First, it benefits from the explosion of mobile Internet and consumer enthusiasm for smartphones that has boosted sales of these new mobile devices. Then, Android has successfully established itself in many smartphone manufacturers. LG, Samsung, HTC and Acer have all adopted. In addition, Google retry again the experience of its own terminal market with the Nexus S.

The race to success might not stop there. Although Nokia remains the leading manufacturer of mobile phones in the world with 40% market share, primarily driven by demand from emerging countries, the European giant would be tempted to open another mobile OS is Symbian. If at first runway Windows Mobile 7 has been mentioned , the new president of Nokia, Stephen Elop , appears ready to open its terminals at the OS giant. The adoption of Android would seem like a bomb. With this choice, the OS monopolize virtually all operating systems market but also the applications . In addition, we must add to that the growing market for tablets, which already monopolizes Android almost all competing models of the iPad.

Re: Android is No. 1 OS for Smartphones Now

Decidedly, the company does not know the Android crisis. Statistics that come out publicly show another success. Indeed, on 61.5 million U.S. mobile subscribers with smartphones (all models and brands combined), 26% have a device running Android, against 25% of iPhones. These figures, the latest that we have are those of November 2010. Yet a month earlier, the situation was reversed: Apple preceded even Google, with respectively 24.6% and 23.5%. In terms of handset sales, Android also exceeds iOS. However, towards the use (still in the U.S.) is Blackberry which remain atop the rankings (33% of the market share of smartphones used in the U.S.) while recording, however, a decrease of four points . In contrast, Android shows an increase of 6% over the same period (three months), and Apple gained a small percent.

Android, which is more than many in the United States and France, also made a remarkable breakthrough in the East. He even became the most popular mobile OS in front Symbia. And has been since the third quarter of 2010, especially in Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and South Korea. However, Symbian is still the dominant system in the South, in countries like Indonesia or Malaysia. But there slowly but surely losing market share. The study also shows that a device sold over five recent months is a smartphone. Or 4.7 million units sold between July and September 2010 (270% compared to 2009), on revenues of 1.48 billion. And as more and more people of his country access to these terminals, the numbers should increase.

Re: Android is No. 1 OS for Smartphones Now

The growth of Android on the market for smartphones can be no surprise, but she excels in all cases the experts' forecasts.
