I like how you aren't tied to certain applications. If I don't like the default dialer I can write my own or use a different one. Stuff like that I think is awesome.
Also apps are built using java and will work on every phone. No more writing different versions of an app for every phone out there. Write one and it works on every phone running Android (of course the hardware has to support it).
according to this (sorry it's in chinese)
dated back in 2005, the Symbian market at 63%, MS Mobile at 15%, Palm Source at 9%, and the rest 13% is split among a various mobile system including those linux distribution.
The fact that MS Mobile is at a constant rate of growing. Even at 23, 26% of the market, MS made 0.337 billion USD in 2005. This article, predicted that by 2010, Symbian would drop from 51% (the end of 2005) to 22% (year of 2010).
i am sure MS is now making almost, or even twice as much as that in 2005.
This is amazing. Like we all talked about Palm, PDA, but many of us only learn about MS Mobile. Palm Linux has been around for quite a long time
But it seems like Linux Mobile is still not as popular, or as hot as those Desktop / Server edition. I am stuck at making this thread more interesting too... LOL
