Agents: your next Smartphone is….

Feb 11th, 2010

Would you like some Android with that……..

What a difference a year makes in the technology stakes department.

After exploding out of the gate in 2009, Android devices continue their astounding marketshare rampup.

Actually, if you check out the above graph, you can see that even application developers have no choice, on a purely business basis, to also join that march.

Gartner (Feb 2011) report;

In the smartphone operating system (OS) market, ”Android grew 888.8 percent in 2010 and moved to the No. 2 position. Android sales in the fourth quarter of 2010 continued to be driven by broad availability of many high-end products from HTC (Desire range, Incredible and EVO), Samsung (Galaxy S) and Motorola (Droid X, Droid 2).

Maybe iPhone 5 will change that, but something tells me, maybe ……

    Very short answer – why did Realesatate.co.n z build an iPhone before an Android app?

    There are estimated to be anywhere north of 220,000 iPhones in NZ – as far as Android – estimates appears to show around 35,000.

    You build first to where the demand is. Then you build to where the demand is going to be.

    By Christmas 2011 I am confident there will be more Android devices than iPhones and well before then Realestate.co.nz will have an Android app.
