A whole bunch of manufacturers are busy trying to create a killer tablet to be able to compete with the iPad. And for many of those manufacturers Google’s Android operating system is the way to go. The hopes are high, since Android already managed to take the leading market share in the smartphone market. A few years ago Apple’s iOS reigned supreme, but was forcefully dethroned by a never-ending series of competitive Android smartphones. But is the tablet business that comparable to the smartphone industry? And shouldn’t we compare it to a much older case, that isn’t that positive for other manufacturers but perhaps fits the bill way better?
Neilsen’s recent survey report shows the raise in the sale of smartphones. According to the report, Sale of smartphones in US have raised from 32% to 55%.
Also, the growth of smartphones has been due to the popularity of Apple iPhone and Google’s Android devices. At the end of 2010, the sales growth has increased by 17% and has remained steady till May this year with Windows Phone 7.
