Smartphonesâ ecosystem dilemma

,----[ Quote ]
| Why  is the Motorola Droid apparently 
| gaining traction in the smartphone market, 
| when Microsoft and Nokia are failing so 
| miserably?
| The Droid, built on Googleâs Android mobile 
| operating system, sold 250,000 in its first 
| week on the market. Thatâs way behind the 
| 1.6 million iPhone 3Gs sold in the first 
| week after its launch, but itâs still enough 
| for Motorola to see possible salvation after 
| years of decline and for Google to feel 
| self-congratulatory about its venture into 
| mobile.


How Microsoft blew it with Windows Mobile

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft Windows continues to dominate the 
| PC market with a 90 percent market-share 
| stronghold, but when it comes to 
| smartphones, Microsoft is getting beat up 
| worse than a mustachioed villain in a Jackie 
| Chan movie.
| Windows Mobile has lost nearly a third of 
| its smartphone market share since 2008, 
| research firm Gartner reports. Windows 
| Mobile had 11 percent of the global 
| smartphone market in the third quarter of 
| 2008, according to Gartner, and last quarter 
| Windows Mobile's market share plummeted to 
| 7.9 percent.

| The open-source Android operating system
| did not have any market share in Q3 2008,
| as it had only recently been introduced. In
| Q3 2009, however, it had a market share of
| 3.9 percent of the smartphone market.
| Palm's WebOS had 1.1 percent, and other
| Linux-based mobile operating systems had
| 4.7 percent.
