Google Android Smart phones are No.1 Choice of U.S. Consumers

With the continuous release of innovative smart phones, mobile devices and PC tablets, they are directly associated to the mounting innovation in these particular niches. Technological advancements and developments are creating a need for modern and compact mobile products.

Nielsen, one of the leading research based companies has lately confirmed it after they have conducted a research. The data being collected highlighted that the Smartphone market is exceptionally competitive and this makes the consumers take a new challenge when they are considering opting for their new Smartphone.

There are three leading manufacturers when it comes to the Smartphone market; however, Google’s Android Smartphone has finally taken the lead. According to the new data, the USA consumers prefer buying Android phones as compared to any other Smartphone model on the market. 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. At Motorola, it is 10% and 1% of consumers who have Android and Microsoft OS.

 

 

Samsung Galaxy Tab – Selling convincingly well

For most of the people, all the mobile devices that have been equipped with the Google’s Android OS are standing out because these are the only ones that are casting shadow over Apple’s iPad and iPhone. Samsung’s “Galaxy Tab” which has been recently released is one of the serious rivals to the Apple’s iPad; it is supported by Android 2.2 operating system.

This South Korean firm has proclaimed that this is a multimedia tablet and till now it has sold approximately 600,000 units in the first month since it has been released. The figure is noteworthy enough to give Samsung adequate assurance and confidence.

It is aiming to reach the target of one million units by then end of this year which seems perfectly achievable. The manufacturer hopes to sell 6 million units of Galaxy Tab by the end of year 2011.

Nevertheless, this particular success rate remains much more reticent when compared with the iPad, which sold around 1 million units in the first month after it was launched.

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.
