2011 Promises To Be A Great Year For Android OS

After 2010 which saw Android market growing by leaps and bound, 2011 promises to be another great year for Android OS.

Android OS VS iOS

According to analysts firms, Android OS market will witness a significant growth in coming months. According to analyst firm Ovum, the Android OS market will be powered by shipments of tablets equipped with Android OS. According to Tony Cripps, an Ovum analyst, Android and Chrome OS will witness heavy sales in the next 5 years.

Challenge For iOS

It is anticipated that the with the growth in the Android market, Apple’s iOS will increasingly face the heat and by the end of the forecast period, Android might well push Apple’s iOS in the second place. Notably a recent report by research firm The Nielsen Company, highlighted the growth in sales of smartphones powered by Android OS.

Meanwhile, independent telecom research firm Telsyte has maintained that though Apple will continue to enjoy the number one status this year, the fastest growing mobile OS platform will still be Android. Foad Fadaghi, research director at Telsyte said that that the Android platform is increasingly gaining popularity among the users and several of its applications are making it highly popular among users.

But there are some issues which need to be addressed by Android, if it wants to gain the leadership in the OS market. Issues like fragmentation and vulnerability to malware attacks needs to be fixed as these are the major roadblocks in the growth of the OS.
