New Survey Shows Android OS Roiling the Smart Phone Market
Google's Android mobile operating system was released more than a year ago, midst high expectations it would change the smart phone market. But the big transformation never materialized – until now.
ChangeWave's December 9-14 survey of 4,068 consumers shows the Android operating system roiling the smart phone market, with Motorola's new Droid smart phone the biggest and most immediate beneficiary.
Among respondents who currently own a smart phone, 4% say they're currently using Google's Android operating system – a 3-pt jump since our survey in September.
But more importantly, 21% of those planning to buy a smart phone in the next 90 days say they'd prefer to have the Android OS on their new phone – a monstrous 15-pt jump in just three months.

It looks like RIM had better get in gear and offer some new innovations in their operating systems /platforms or risk falling by the wayside.
