Android overtakes Symbian by 1.9 million sales!

Even if you think it doesn’t matter how far Android can go, ‘I will stick to Nokia’, then I must tell you that Android has now officially broken all records with higher sales figures than Symbian in the last quarter of 2010.

What’s more interesting is that while Android’s popularity has been ever on the rise, Nokia has adopted Symbian and have started to develop it in-house. Now we need to wait for the future which will tell us whether this was a bad business move by Nokia or not!

The survey conducted by a Research firm “Canalys” which revealed that while Symbian sales stood at 31 million, Android managed higher sales at 32.9 million smartphones during the last quarter of 2010. The sales were possibly fuelled by exciting handsets launched by Samsung, LG and HTC.

I am not predicting that Nokia’s strategy to become the leader in Mobile Technology is a failure, however Nokia must be very careful with its plans there are a lot of Nokia lovers out there specially in India.

Will Nokia manage to take Symbian to a new level ? Do drop in your comments.
