PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless When Apple sued HTC, and targeted Android specifically (news which came out of the blue), many people, including myself, were convinced this was Apple letting the world know they were afraid of Android's rising popularity. This notion was laughed away by many an Apple fan, but it turns out that this is most likely far closer to reality than many dare to admit: in the first quarter of 2010, Android conquered the number two market share spot from the iPhone in the US - and by a wide margin too. Update: Added a graph which better shows the trend.

From what i know Nokia is still the worlds largest mobile phone manufacturer.

I think Android will win in the long run because of market penetration. As long as you produce phones you can make an android device. Even Apple can. Only Apple produces iphones with the iphone os.

Android loves the user, Apple loves the users money.

Also, i think that Nokia is not doing a good job defending it self in the "new" touch phone market. Big changes will come here if they don't catch up.
