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.

It's August 12 today. That's the date of their press releases. It's not yesterday's news.

And as for my English - well. Gelukkig is dat niet de enige taal waarin ik mij verstaanbaar kan maken ;) .

For those left wondering:

"Luckily that isn't the only language which I can use to make myself heard"

And no english is not my native language either. :-)

I apologize. I thought this was yet another regurgitation of a different Android sales figure, combined with some of Gartner's projections that have been out there for a while as well. Reading OSNews at work is a great way to skim articles and jump to conclusions, after all.

As for the English: persoonlijk praat ik ook Frans, Duits en aardig wat Latijn. Laten we het daar vooral verder over hebben. ;)
