Android: An expert guide


Google’s Android platform in a short time has become a force to be reckoned with in the smartphone world, and its success raises all sorts of questions for IT professionals.
Just a few years ago, Android didn’t exist; in the second quarter of this year, nearly 52 million Android-based phones shipped, representing 48% of the entire smartphone market, according to research firm Canalys.
The pace of Android’s growth has been so amazing that it has even been suggested thatMicrosoft is making more from licensing deals with Android phone makers than from its own Windows Phone.
IT folks will need to deal with this phenomenon at some level, whether they actually support Android-based devices for employees or simply try to integrate their business IT with the prevalent smartphones.
