Just like the iPod inspired the MP3 industry, the iPhone sure can take credit for inspiring the smartphone industry – but Android is looking to dominate it.
100 million Android devices are now active worldwide. Through 36 OEMs and 215 carriers. And 400,000 devices are being activated each day. These are significantly bigger numbers than Apple can tout. Plus, with a much more open app market (you can decide whether that’s a good or bad thing) touting 200,000 available apps and more than 4.5 billion app installations to date, Android is playing to win.
Apple may be the world’s most valuable brand. But Google is determined that Android will be the most valuable mobile platform.
