Google is on top of the mobile platform industry. There are no doubts about it; the Android OS is currently the fastest growing mobile platform in terms of both evolution and more importantly, distribution.

At the moment, Nokia’s Symbian OS is still the most widely spread around platform in existence, but this is mostly due to the fact that Symbian has been around for ages. Google Android, on the other hand, has only been around for just a little around three years –and many experts agree that it will even surpass Symbian in about a year or so (with its’ current growth).

Version 2.3 Gingerbread of this very successful operating system is just the latest update that the OS needs to further show the world how far along the OS is in terms of innovation and evolution, and looking at the first demonstration videos of the platform proves exactly that.

Battery management is the first big new feature in the update and it is an excellent one. While the Android has never really been criticized for having bad energy usage, streamlining is still much appreciated. The new OS is expected to provide fully charged devices with a few extra hours of usage time.

Near field communications technology is also supported by the system. Considering that both Apple and Nokia are already implementing the technology, real world applications will certainly not be far behind. Sadly, most of the older smart phones do not have the hardware to support this new feature.

Other features such as internet based voice calls, better gaming and even better CPU usage are all pointing towards a definitely bright future for the next Android OS. The only question now is when the system updates will be rolling out for individual devices –especially for those in contract as the Android 2.2 Froyo updates have only been recently launched.
