Second Annual AndroidTO Conference is back on October 26th, 2011

 

Smartphones are an asset in our lives. Almost half of internet users are now accessing the internet through their mobile phones. Amongst the usual suspects in the smartphone market, a recent report by Canalys stated that the Android smartphone is leading this change. Worldwide smartphone shipments grew 73% year over year, but Android grew much faster - 379% year over year. The analysis firm tracked smartphones in 56 countries and Android was the most distributed in 35 of them. For the last quarter, Android reached 48% global market share.

Canada has lagged behind in adoption of Android-based handsets with March 2011's ComScore results indicating Android only has 12.2% penetration in the smartphone market. However, with the availability of better handsets at lower price points - this is expected to drastically increase over the next two to five years.

To encourage consumer, developer and marketer adoption in Canada, the second annual AndroidTO conference is back on October 26th, 2011- the only conference in Canada that celebrates everything Android to the fullest. This one day event is dedicated to Android enthusiasts and developers who will learn about the Android platform and the opportunities surrounding it.
