Android News: Selling More, and Upcoming Versions

It seems that Google’s success is not going to stop anytime soon. If anything, one can say that the tech company is slowly taking over the mobile phone industry. According to recent reports, there are over 55 million Android devices being shipped out this year alone. That’s over 500% of the number of Android that went out to stores last year and is a significant telling of how the Android currently stands in the mobile phone industry.

It has already been confirmed that the Google Android has surpassed the market share held by Apple’s iOS platform and is now slowly catching up with the Symbian operating system. Symbian’s hold on the market is basically rooted on how long the platform has been around -but if the Android keeps up this current pace, then it will not be too long before the OS is able to take the top spot.

There is actually nothing so bad about having more Android devices. While it may seem saturated, the Android is far more reliable than the Symbian platform. While Nokia has gone to great lengths to further improve the OS, the fact remains that it has not been able to catch up with the latest trends which Google has been able to do. Not only is the Android keeping up, but it is also the one pioneering the industry.

And it seems that Google has more up its sleeve.

According to reports, the Android developer has more than just the upcoming Android 3.0 Gingerbread in the works. Rumors are now stating that there is another update to the operating system: version 3.1 or 3.2, which will be named as the Honeycomb. It is a big leap, considering that Google is still standardizing the usage of Android Froyo on leading smart phones (the current standard is still version 2.0/2.1 Éclair).
