Androids Taking Over…

by Sarthak Moghe on February 3, 2011

We knew this day would come, we were warned. For generations, books and movies have been depicting Androids as the evil monsters of future ready to dethrone humans as superior species, kill them and take over the world.

And today it is coming true. However it’s quite ironical that this time, these Androids come from the company whose motto is “Don’t be Evil”. 

Following the epic win over Apple iPhone few months back, today Google’s total android smartphones sales in the last quarter of 2010 recorded a whooping 33.3 as compared to Nokia’s 31 million which cherished the no.1 spot for last 10 years. Apple had its place on the podium in third place with 16.2 million

Although some might see this comparison unfair to the Finnish giant Nokia, considering it makes its own handsets, while Google’s OS is shipped with a no of high and low end mobile manufacturing companies like Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony Ericsson etc.

And with Apple’s recent addition of Verizon as a carrier and Google’s announcement of Android 3.0 aka Honeycomb, we can only expect the competition to grow fierce over the coming days

    Android will still dominate the battle between OS, being open source of android reflects the OS as design for masses thast why people easily embrace it.

    I have to admit, it is hard for me to choose at all. I was decidedly against smart phones for the longest time, until I got an iPhone, which is now the most useful gadget I have ever owned. Just because the iPhone ‘popped’ my smart phone cherry, I feel like I should lend it my support!

    well written .. Seriously by 2016, android would be the number one mobile platform in the world. Currently iOS being topped, android stands the next. One of disadvantage, oh no, let me not call it as a disadvantage, being a open source platform, people fear to use it as their primary phone, thats the fact. SHit of iOS, they charge for everything. soon android will top all.
