Motorola Droid named gadget of the year by TIME magazine

,----[ Quote ]
| The Motorola Droid has been enjoying some 
| great success in the States. Since its US 
| launch in November, itâs been the subject of 
| much praise and critical acclaim â with 
| pundits suggesting it might be Androidâs 
| best outing yet. Now, on the same day of the 
| Droidâs UK launch (as the Milestone) itâs 
| been crowned best gadget of 2009 in TIME 
| Magazineâs top ten of everything for 2009.


The Game-Changing Android OS

,----[ Quote ]
| The Android OS (operating system) used on 
| the new Droid phones offered by Verizon and 
| powered by Google is the first significant 
| threat to the domination of the computing 
| world by the Windows operating system. 
| Although this potential is still in the 
| distant future, it should not be ignored.

| The biggest difference - and perhaps 
| Android's strongest point - is that Google's 
| operating system is open source. That means 
| anybody - from the weekend hacker to the 
| biggest cell phone makers in the world - can 
| tweak it as they see fit. As such, the 
| Android phones didn't look like clones - for 
| better of for worse, the individual smart 
| phone makers managed to make them their own.



Windows Mobile loses nearly a third of market share

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.
