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.

When MeeGo kicks in, there will be more REAL linux phones.

Kernel is all Android has from GNU/Linux. In practice android could effectively switch to another kernel (*BSD, or even a proprietary one like QNX) without skipping a beat.

I was about to ask how long it will take before people start to turn on Android, now that it's not longer the under, to support a new underdog. Same thing happened to Ubuntu/Fedora.
