With the popularity of Android OS growing by the minute, it could only be a matter of time before it will overtake the entire globe as OS king. The market in the US seems to be on a steady climb, while two new reports are giving a glimpse into how Android is performing in the rest of the world.
Starting in Asia, whose most popular Symbian OS, has just been laid to rest, with Android OS surpassing its lead in the third quarter this year. This news comes according to market research firm GfK Asia, who also report overall smartphone sales are up from 1.27 million to over 4.7 from the same time last year.
Now in the Nordic regions, research company QAim Oy has reported that Android OS is on the rise. Measuring access requests to Nordic web content, Android is in third place with 9.85 percent, while it was at .83 earlier in the year. They are projecting with this rate of increase that Android will overtake both iOS and Symbian by August 2011. This is all great news for the Android community. Such rapid growth only solidifies how popular the Android OS is becoming. Looking forward, for now at least, there really isn’t any competition.
