Nielsen has lately released a report and according to that Android, the Operating system from Google happens to be the prevalent piece of the U.S based consumer Smartphone market acquiring 39% of it. The iOS by Apple stands second with 28% whereas the RIM’s Blackberry OS has dropped down to almost 20%.
The graph provided by Nielsen in this regard shows that Apple has been still able to grasp the position of ‘Top Manufacturing Unit’ as they all along with RIM are the only manufacturers of their respective operating systems. On the other hand, Android Operating system is featured on hardware from various companies.
The popularity rate concerning Android has even exceeded its previous protrusions. In the last report by Nielsen, the month surveys concerning U.S. mobile-based consumers showed that there had been a progressively more variable change in the popularity and preferred of mobile operating systems. 31% of the consumers who were planning to opt for a Smartphone said that they would be going for Google’s Android as this is the platform they preferred. On the other hand, iOS by Apple has dropped a little to 30%. RIM Blackberry which was once a leader has only 11% interest whereas 20% were unclear and vague – though it seems that most of them would be going to Android!
Google has always tried to come up with innovative products. I am sure most of you are already using Google Web store on Chrome. I must say, a very smart move from Google to retain traffic on their browser all the time. Like any other Google product, Chrome web store is addictive and it will be one of the things you will be using in future.
Now coming to the experience which you get on Webstore. If you dont have a smartphone, you really dont have worry about it. Just install Google Chrome for free and enjoy the apps which you always want. It has a good collection of android apps which we are always looking for. Now you can envy your smartphone friends that ” Look, I am also playing Angry birds without a smartphone”
Now some of the cons which I have observed in this store. Some apps are not working and they crash due to some reason. I think they really need to work on it because apps doesnt look 100% tested and quality assured. I have experienced this in some weather and financial apps. Other apps sometimes are unable to install and some doesnt work at all after installing. so I guess, the idea is great but there are some flaws in the apps. But as a start, you can install all the famous apps which are fully functional.
A picture that has been leaked, asserting to be Google’s next Nexus Smartphone, has actually surfaced, showcasing a design that is lacking behind the recognizable Android buttons.

The end results could be two different models; one for Sprint and the other one for T-Mobile that are to be launched simultaneously.
