According to latest tabloids, Google Inc.’s Andriod called GOOG.0 has outshone Nokia’s Symbian called NOK1V.HE, to become the world leader among smartphone software developers.
“The reshuffle underscores how quickly Google, which offers its software to phone makers for free, has raced to the top of the smartphone market ahead of Apple Inc's (AAPL.O) rapid ascension. Google and Apple have revolutionized the smartphone market, sending Nokia scrambling,” said a market analyst.
A report by the research company Canalys has revealed that in the fourth quarter, nearly 32.9 million Android-based phones have been sold, while only 31 million Symbian-equipped phones were sold, by phone manufacturers.
