Wasn’t This Supposed to Be the Year of Android?

Written by Nxtbook Media

After all, that’s what we heard last year; that the oncoming slew of Android products would take a deep bite out of the available tablet and mobile marketshare. But here we are and as of now, that’s not happening. This article explains better than I about why that’s the case and why it’s not likely to change.

"This year, thanks to an expansion of carriers, the story is reversed. Now Android’s market share appears to be dead in the water, and Apple is back on the rise.

Couple that with the aforementioned problems — waning developer interest, pissed off handset partners, a super fragmented operating system, and carriers preparing to support Windows — and suddenly you can see that Android, which looked like it was ready to take over the world, is suddenly on uneven footing."
