Android Mobile Operating System is set to capture maximum mobile smartphone market in 2011. The Powerful Android Smart Phone Platform is bound to become a dominant leader OS for maximum mobiles available for sale.

Who would believe that the Android, a mobile operating system bought by Google in 2005, is going to own a quarter of the worldwide OS market by the end of 2010? Indeed, the past year has been very successful for the Android platform and 2011 is looking even better for Android enthusiasts all over the world. Introducing new high-end, faster than ever, compatible smartphones, lots of cool and useful applications, and a version that will be solely on tablets, Android will try and blow its competition out of the water. Find out in this article what the top reasons are for 2011 to be set as the year of the Android.

First off, Android gets a little help from LG who will release in 2011 its new LG Optimus 2X Android smartphone, a sharp and responsive gadget boasting Nvidia’s dual core processor named Tegra2. The powerful CPU really grants it a “super smartphone” status. Benefiting from a large 4 inch screen running at a resolution of 800×400, it has good viewing angles, nice saturated colors and good contrast. Other highlights include the dual cameras, a rear facing one at 8 megapixel supporting 1080p which you can play it via the HDMI port, and a smaller camera at 1.3 megapixel which is perfect for video chatting.

Another reason why the Android is going strong in 2011 is due to the arrival of Acer’s 4.8 inch smartphone. With its huge screen, Acer believes the new smartphone will incorporate the advantages of both smartphones and tablets. With a 1024×768 resolution, it’s an ideal device for web browsing and to please the movie lovers. Zooming, scrolling left and right on web pages is soon to be a thing of the past. Boasting a 1 GHz processor, an 8 megapixel camera with LED flash, Bluetooth 3.0 and HDMI output, the future for Acer’s smartphone looks bright.

With more and more 3D movies and 3D content being available in the recent past, Android developed an auto stereoscopic 3D display. Do 3D glasses bother you? Well, this a common complaint and the new smartphone from Sharp called the Galapagos 003SH has fixed this problem because you won’t need glasses to watch your favorite 3D movies and shows. Other features include a 9.6 megapixel camera capable of 720p video. The downside is that, for the moment, it’s only available in Japan but there’s a chance that in the near future, some models will penetrate the US market.

This year will also see the presence of a lot more 4G Android smartphones as Verizon introduces its 4G LTE network. The internet experience is up to 4 times faster than the usual 3G. Other advantages include higher bandwidth, maximum download speeds of 7 mbps or more, better response time and better coverage, thanks to the 2.6GHz frequency. Motorola with its Motorola Droid Bionic and HTC with their HTC ThunderBolt series, are the first companies delivering the 4G madness to the world. Other companies jumping on the 4G bandwagon are Sprint with the Evo Shift smartphone and the Inspire on AT&T.

The new and updated Android software is another reason why the Android will dominate 2011. The Google Android 2.3 GingerBread version of the Android software highlights many features and improvements that will surely delight its users. Support for WebM video playback is included alongside new features like improved copy and paste and built-in support for the VP8 open video compression format. The interface is more refined and trackballs no longer exist for Android 2.3 handsets. With its updated user interface, it’s easier than ever to navigate though the menus and use all the available features. VOIP/SIP calling and Near Field Communication (NFC) which enables the exchange of data between devices are supported as well. Regarding cameras, the software can choose the best camera for taking photos or video calling and multiple cameras are also now supported, including front-facing cameras. A longer battery life is also promised. The first smartphone to feature the Android 2.3 software is the Google Nexus S.

In the tablet world, things are shaping up for the better. Toshiba presented the new model tablet to be marketed from June 2011. The tablet is the company’s second try and runs on the Android 2.4 Honeycomb which also available on another tablet Motorola XOOM Tablet. The tablet boasts a 10 inch display and uses, like the previous model, the Tegra 2 dual core processor running at 1.GHz and capable of 1080p HD video. It runs at a resolution of 1280×800. The new tablet is also equipped with two cameras, a 2megapixel camera for video chatting and a rear facing camera at 5 megapixel. Motorola is another hardware manufacturer that will run the OS on its tablets. Rumors are that the new Motorola tablet will be provided with an Nvidia dual-core 3D processor, a 5 megapixel camera and Verizon network connectivity.

Other good news for Android users: 2011 is the year the Android will support the Netflix streaming service. You should see it coming as Android has expanded its base of users and lots of companies want to cash in on their success. Netflix is the largest subscription service for movies and TV shows in the world. In 2011, Android will support VLC, the popular open-source media player. This will allow you to play popular video formats instantly. The first steps in the mobile universe were done in September 2010, when VLC announced its iOS version for the iPAD. Regarding video chatting, Android has countered the advances from Apple by introducing video calling as a built-in support in Android 2.3. With more and more front-facing cameras, video chatting will become a mainstream function available to all Android smartphones.

In retrospect, it seems that Android have a lot of tricks up their sleeve and will continue to impress smartphones lovers in 2011 and also give Apple a run for their money. The Android’s ascension from a virtually unknown mobile OS to one of the most popular software around is simply legendary and fantastic. Things look better than ever and if Sony’s rumored Sony Playstation phone becomes a reality, it will be the first hybrid between a smartphone and a portable gaming console. Benefiting from a 1GHz processor and 1GB RAM, it will certainly be shipped with the Android 2.3 software. Lots of new and powerful smartphones paving their way this year, an improved Android software and cool applications, 3D movies without glasses, the 4G LTE network and new tablets – all these make 2011 an exciting year for the Android to take full reign!

Many people rednaig this article are probably thinking, there are already so many iPhone apps, I don\'t know what I would make. However, something similar was said a few years ago: there are already so many websites, I don\'t know what I would make. It\'s true that there is a first-mover advantage, so you don\'t want to merely repeat what another has done. The key is to narrow your focus, so you can find an untapped niche.
