    @venu Nokia is still relying strongly on Mobiles, since its having great following in Mobile stream, I think its gonna be ready for Android field tooo, since its one of the company with vast experience

  2. Samsung Galaxy S is said to run on Android 2.1… now move it up to 1st place. And why is the HTC EVO not on this list??

    • Siddartha

      @Mohan Samsung is one of the Leading company in this market, But I love HTC of all 🙂

  3. One thing that I imagine hurts is the initial registration process to buy an app. With an iphone, one has already given their CC info to apple; with android, you must enter info the first time. I suspect that a higher percent of android users have never bought any apps than iphone apps.

  4. Hii guys actually these are the latest statistics jus 1 week ago..But by seeing these,I too disappointed bcoz many smartphones which have more attractions could not occupy the charts..

  5. And none of them actually could made it BIG, except the HTC Legend. Oh yes, Nexus One has been a BIG flop, if you ask me and ask Google! Google’s recent decision to stop selling Nexus One online is a proof of this.

      @TechChunks Ofcourse Google Android(Nexus) may be a flop show, But in future its going to rock for sure. I loved the concept they came with.
