Gartner: Android To Hit Number 2 In Cell Phone O/S In 2010 [uk.reuters.com]
Google Inc's Android software will become the world's second most popular operating system for cell phones this year, leapfrogging rival offerings from Microsoft Corp, Research in Motion and Apple Inc, according to a new report.

By 2014 Android will account for nearly 30 percent of all cell phone operating system sales, according to research firm Gartner, putting it in position to challenge Nokia Corp's Symbian software, which has reigned as the top mobile operating system for years.


Even if it doesn't crack the number 2 slot this year, it is still mighty impressive growth.
