According to recent news update on Fortune blog, Android smartphones are outselling iPhones by factor of twice or more per day.
That means that since the quater started for Apple 19 days ago, Apple has only sold around 70,000 iPhone 4s a day, less than half of the current Android activation rate.
I can actually see a day in the next year or two where Android smartphones are more popular devices due to its availability in many different networks and devices.
Simply, consumers have a lot more “choices” when it comes to Android. You can get a large screen size such as the HTC Evo 4G or Droid X, or go with a smaller platform like a Nexus One or the upcoming Droid 2.
On top of that, most Android devices are fully capable of wireless tethering as a Mobile Hotspot, capable of sharing data connection with 5 or more internet devices.
Let’s also not forget that all Android phones come with free GPS navigation via Google Navigation, which is superior to any other GPS navigation systems I have tried. (And oh yeah, don’t forget Google Maps, Earth, and a whole “array” of free services Google provides.)
As I have been using Android devices (only since January this year), one thing that helps me in my business is Google’s GMail and Calendar, which syncs perfectly with my desktop versions, not to mention all my 4 Android devices I own now. I love the cloud, it lets me do things you can’t do otherwise.
One more thing, if you own multiple numbers, you can use Google Voice to get all your phone calls and voicemails to all your phones. So when you call me, all my Android phones ring, I am free to take one of them where ever I go, although I prefer taking at least two in my pockets, probably not good for my health though with all that cellular radiation emitting on my body.
