AdMob Determines Android Is Growing Faster Than Ever

,----[ Quote ]
| Google took the wraps off its Nexus One phone 
| today, and by all accounts, this device will 
| help spread Android further and faster than 
| ever.  But new data from AdMob shows that the 
| mobile operating system was already on quite 
| a roll.


Head to head: Google Nexus One v Apple iPhone

,----[ Quote ]
| It's a clear win for Google on the specs. 
| However, specificationists should beware. The 
| iPhone was far from the cutting edge spec-
| wise when it launched in 2007. In fact, 
| Nokia's N95, which was launched almost five 
| months before the iPhone, had higher specs in 
| almost every category. The iPhone beat it 
| with usability, attention to detail and 
| features such as integration with iTunes. And 
| that was before the App Store. The Google 
| Nexus One is a worthy opponent for the iPhone 
| at last but this battle is far from won. 



Demand for Android phones makes 'monstrous' 250% jump

,----[ Quote ]
| A "monstrous" jump in demand for Android-
| equipped smartphones has turned the market
| upside down, a retail pollster said today.
| Of the people who told ChangeWave Research
| in a mid-December survey that they planned
| to buy a smartphone in the next 90 days,
| 21% said they expected to purchase a
| handset powered by Google's Android
| operating system. That number represented
| a 250% increase over the 6% that pegged
| Android as their mobile OS of choice when
| ChangeWave last queried consumers' plans
| in September.
