And in terms of mobile web browsing, Android is also uprising at the expense of iOS that is still leading in the North America market according to the latest report from Quantcast.


A follow up on prediction:

Android to grab No. 2 spot by 2012 (http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9139026/Android_to_grab_No._2_spot_by_2012_says_Gartner), says Gartner.


Android will have moved up the most from 2009 to 2012, from sixth place to second. BlackBerry will have moved down the most, from second to fifth, while iPhone will remain in third position and Windows Mobile will remain in fourth position.

Microsoft hopes to bury iPhone, Android (http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20101002/tc_nm/us_microsoft_phones)...

Windows Phone 7 software will be publicly unveiled on October 11 and expected on handsets in stores by November.

Some analysts say "it's Microsoft's last chance to catch up with Apple and Google Inc's Android smartphones, after squandering its strong market position in only a few years."


"We'll have to see how much vendor support (Microsoft) gets behind it that was partially what drove Android success," said Keane at Alpine. "But now, their problem is, 'We already have Android and the iPhone, do we need a third one?'."


Android OS smartphones account for 29% of the U.S. market; iOS and RIM devices stand at 27% each, according to Nielsen’s research.

So do I. Temporarily entered into my life schedule for 2016 http://www.techsupportalert.com/freeware-forum/images/smilies/smile.gif

Then you will be able to get a device running on Android 6.0 (if there's) http://www.techsupportalert.com/freeware-forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif

Right now I went through a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfJuigJebRg&feature=player_embedded#at=2191) which takes about an hour showing what you'll have in Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), supporting larger screen devices, multi-core processors, hardware acceleration for graphics and introducing new user interfaces.

That's impressive.
