Android now wins over the hearts

Android wins over the hearts for most desired OS

Following the situation whereby Android OS has taken lead in market share, the latest Nielsen report on the mobile market shows that it is taking over the hearts of the market or should we say the “wants”. People are now more swayed towards an Android phone than any other as can be seen below (click to enlarge):

From the same report (see link below) this is reinforced in the recent acquirers trend in the chart below where Android takes 50% of the market share:

Apple dominating tablets… for now

Great article over at The Register on the future of Android and Apple. Matt Asay discusses how Jobs recently glowed about the dominance of Apple in the tablet market. As I discussed recently the tipping point for Android is nigh, Android is taking over the iPhone and Assay points out that this is why Apple is concentrating their efforts on the tablet market now. In the same way that Windows wasn’t really better than Apple when the Mac versus PC battle took place and was lost by Apple, Android just needs to be good, cheaper and in multiple variations… what they have done with Android and in so doing have won the market.

I’m still gutted that Nokia aren’t going the Android route as I would have been such a happy man… :)
