Both the iPhone and Blackberry have been sharing 27 percent market share for the past year whereas Google’s Android presently is holding around 29 percent of the entire U.S. based Smartphone market.

Android is offering its users with a lot more choices; this is something far away from the fairly low-tech Samsung Intercept to the high-end with Motorola Droid Pro. Android offers a large variety of manufacturers as the Operating System can be modified so that the models, features along with the overall user experience completely varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Nielsen explains this point that when it is about the producers then Apple winners and RIM, ever since they are the only ones that are creating and selling Smartphones with their respective OS. The company has further added that the HTC’s consumer base has 12% a HTC Android device and 7% own a HTC device running Microsoft OS.

Smart phones competing against iPhone 4 included Samsung Galaxy S, BlackBerry Torch 9800, LG Optimus 7, and the HTC Desire. Samsung Galaxy was also competing in the Best Mobile Device competition as it received great reviews and huge selling. Lately, Samsung Galaxy series smart phone has registered as one of the largest selling gadget in 2010 and it topped in the entire Android Market.

Although, an HTC phone was also nominated for the Best Mobile Device but it did not win; on the other hand, it won the award for the Device Manufacturer of the Year. The Taiwanese company was highly praised by the judges panel commenting that it built its market existence just from nowhere with fresh marketing, branding and a strong portfolio of gadgets across different platforms. In particular, it has turned out to be an enduring and an exceptionally popular phone manufacturer. With outstanding customer service and great communication, this was a well-deserved recognition.

Android has now 100,000 apps

There is nothing stopping Android and the latest development is that the OS has now more than 100,000 apps currently available in the market. Definitely, a new landmark has been set. Android is doing extremely well and has been proven as a major hit. Major handset manufacturers are now relying on Android. There are two major reasons for Android’s success; one is open source platform so manufacturers like Samsung and HTC have Android as their OS. Second most obvious reason is that it is the easiest way to compete with the giant Iphone. To develop a new OS from scartch will cost the company so much and Android is not secretive about its operating system so companies are switching towards this OS which makes this more tempting.

Android’s success is not confined to just smartphones now but now they have entered into Tablet PCs market as well.

Google’s Tablet PC

Ipad has been launched by Apple Inc and is selling like hot cakes. While cut throat competition already exists between Apple and Google on Cellphone, Google has decided to launched its tablet PC on which Android will be run.

While Google develops every hardware in collaboration with HTC.  One thing which Google has to keep in mind that there are some companies which are offering Andriod powered Tablet PCs. But Google is also a very smart marketer like Apple. The rumors are wandering on blogs and people have already named Google’s tablet PC as “Ipad Killer”.
