Android…mobility gone Google
Android is a complete, open mobile phone software stack from the Open Handset Alliance. Google’s Android platform is all set for an incredible growth in terms of number of users and will become the second most popular mobile operating system in three years down the line, if predictions made by an analyst firm come true.
Market research firm IDC predicted that the Google-owned Android platform will grow faster than all its rivals to reach the second spot by the year 2013, second only to Nokia’s Symbian.As of now, the mobile OS market is being dominated by Nokia-owned Symbian, followed by BlackBerry manufacturer Research In Motion, and Apple at the third spot.
By providing an open development platform, Android offers Symbiotic the ability to build extremely rich and innovative applications. We are free to take advantage of the device hardware, access location information, run background services, set alarms, add notifications to the status bar, and much, much more.
While availability of Android powered handsets in Africa is very low, Symbiotic can deliver solutions to any market.
