Android Influences Consumers Preference

The Android mobile operating system from Google was first introduced more than a year ago. A recent opinion survey suggests that consumer preference regarding the smart phone they would consider purchasing is the Android OS.

The Google mobile operating system has experienced an increase of 200% since the previous survey released in September. With those who planned to purchase within the next 90 days, 21% said they would now choose Android. To put this in context, ChangeWave inform that three months ago Android OS was tied for last place in consumer preference among the major mobile operating systems. Since then it has surged into second place ahead of all competitors except the iPhone OS X. That's significant but ReadWriteWeb acknowledge that although this seems promising we shouldn't forget the recent figures regarding sales of the Nexus One, which fell short of expectations with just 20,000 sold since launch.
