The Android Market made its access in October 2008 with just 34 apps and nine video games. It suddenly witnessed a spurt in to-be-had packages with a whopping 500% boom in less than a year. Google is right on the back of Apple in mobile applications, with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad users accessing more than 500,000 iOS-based applications via the iTunes App Store. Apple’s App Store was in July 2008, and it managed treached000 milestones in just over sixteen months, numerous months after it executed 1 5 billion downloads.

Apple currently lets builders promote apps through its App Store in a hundred countries. Android Market is available in 46 nations and Blackberry in 65 markets with six languages. Android entered the smartphone OS industry more than one year back with T-Mobile G1, and it paid off with many handset makers like Motorola, Sony Ericsson, and Samsung joining the bandwagon. Android acquired a big chunk of marketplace share within the first year of its launch.


According to a modern-day marketplace studies document, by 2013, clever telephones will grow to symbolize over 27% of shipments globally, with the share in some developed markets in Western Europe surpassing 60% and 48% in North America. The current and upcoming launches of the latest smartphone running structures, including iOS4, Blackberry OS 6, Symbian 3 and 4, and Windows Phone 7, will help hold the modern-day trend of heavy growth in the telephone enterprise. However, the worldwide market percentage will still revolve around those four key providers. Smartphone manufacturers, including Samsung, Sony Ericsson, LG, and Motorola, will use the Android platform for their new budget devices to help Android reap number-one fame in North America.
