PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The fact that Android is doing well shouldn't be a surprise to anyone; lots of figures already prove that. New figures from research firms Gartner and IDC from the second quarter of 2010 show that not only is Android doing well in the United States - it's doing well in Foreign as well. Worldwide, Android has soared past iOS, and is closing in on Research In Motion's BlackBerry - just one percentage point left. Symbian is still the undisputed king of smartphone land, with more installations sold than RIM and Android combined.

I really hate this iPhone (1 or 2 active product lines) vs. Android (Many many different product lines across many Cell manufactures) vs. others.

In really they all fill different market segments, and are to attract different people. I think the iPhone is hurting RIM more then competing against Android. As the iPhone is just a more subjectivly "classy" phone and really good for business use, which was RIM's main business.

Android is taking the more is better approach and is competing against and taking over the non-smart phone market, hence it big rise.

The iPhone made smart phones cool. Android brought them to the masses.

Oddly enough they are not really in that much competition with each other. There are some people who will need to choose between an android vs. and iPhone. But for most it is an easy decision.
