Android Grew 350% in 2009

,----[ Quote ]
| While we recently reported that Google's 
| Nexus One had a slow start coming out of the 
| gate, the Android operating system, which is 
| spread across a number of devices, is not 
| having the same issues. A report by Myxer, a 
| mobile entertainment company with over 30 
| million members, says that visits to its 
| mobile site by Android users grew 350% in 
| 2009, strongly outpacing the iPhone, which 
| grew 170% during the same period.

| When it comes to the mobile Web, 
| increasingly there are only two mobile 
| platforms that matter: Appleâs iPhone and 
| Googleâs Android. According to market share 
| data put out today by AdMob (which is being 
| acquired by Google), the iPhone and Android 
| combined captured 81 percent of U.S. mobile 
| ad impressions on smartphones in the fourth 
| quarter of 2009, up from a combined 55 
| percent in the first quarter of 2009.  Most 
| of that growth comes from Android, which 
| nearly doubled its market share from the 
| third quarter to 27 percent.  The iPhone OS 
| made up the other 54 percent. (Worldwide, 
| the iPhone had 51 percent share and Android 
| had 16 percent, for a combined total of 67 
| percent).

| A clever bunch of boffins have managed to port Android to an x86 platform, 
| allowing people to run Googleâs OS on Asusâ Eee PC netbooks as well as several 
| other already tried and tested 32-bit (x86) platforms.

Google Chrome âGoats Teleportedâ Easter Egg for Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The folks at Google and in-fact lots of other
| major companies have a knack for hiding Easter
| eggs within their products. We have covered
| several such Easter Eggs in the past.
| However, we can across another Easter Egg in
| Google Chrome where users can teleport goats
| from the Task Manager. This is basically
| available on version of the Linux
| version of Chrome.


Asus and Garmin Make an Android

,----[ Quote ]
| I just love company tie ups, and Asus â
| Garmin is one particular company I am
| interested in. I have yet to see any of
| their old devices first hand, though I am
| aware of the M20 and G60 by reputation. The
| G60 in particular got my attention when it
| launched as it used the Linux mobile
| operating system.


Android to replace Garmin-Asus' current Linux platform

,----[ Quote ]
| At CommunicAsia today, Garmin-Asus showed off its nuvifone G60 and M20
| devices. The former was first developed independently by Garmin and later
| rebadged with the new brand name after the two companies decided to
| collaborate on a line of navigation-focused smartphones.

| The phone runs on Linux (the first smartphone to do so, to the best of my
| knowledge).


Android Garmin Nuvifone in the works

,----[ Quote ]
| The revelation comes following the
| announcement of Google Maps Navigation and we
| can't help thinking that jumping from Linux,
| to Symbian, to Android is a bit of a
| coincidence, particularly given the
| impressive demo we've seen so far.


Garminâs new nuvi 1690 and 1860: specs and more
