Android Community at CTIA Wireless 2011

Android Community is hard at work at CTIA Wireless 2011, the annual mobile confab which this year is in Orlando, Florida. We're expecting a ton of wireless news including stories on Android phones and even more tablets. In fact, news has already been leaked that AT&T is bringing the Nexus S 4G, with it's pure Google Android experience, to mobile customers this year along with the LG Thrill 4G and HTC HD7S.

CTIA 2011 [Full Preview and Anticipation Guide]

When I write this post, I am literally on an airplane flying from Minneapolis International Airport down to Orlando Florida where I and several compatriots of mine representing both Android Community and SlashGear will be having a fabulous time walking around CTIA 2011 in addition to listening in on some keynote speeches by the heads of this mobile industry in the USA. The following guide will show you what we expect to see this year at the Orange County Convention Center from groups like HTC, LG, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, and heck, maybe even a little Nokia since the rumors of them keeping Android in mind while they roll out with Windows Phone 7 in the meantime. But what about Motorola?

Android loses out to iPhone bigtime in JD Power Satisfaction Ratings

Oh snap, looks like JD Power still loves the iPhone more than every other phone they've got a rating for, those dastardly dudes. They've got every other bigtime brand on there, HTC, Motorola, Samsung, and even Nokia, Palm, and RIM Blackberry, though we're also not sure how they found those groups to top Samsung and their Galaxy S device line. Of course you could notice that Apple scores amongst the lowest for battery function, that owing a bunch to the researchers found that those using social networks (battery drainers) enjoyed their phones significantly more than those who had no use for such things.

Surprise… Android on a Nokia Phone

What do we have here, a new beginning, Nokia finally getting with the times, or did someone just get fired because they didn't photoshop the right image on a Nokia phone. We don't know which but we just had to post this little mistake up for the world to see. What we have here is an advertisement at a Orange store showing Deezer on a Nokia phone. Somehow they accidentally threw in a little Android love.

Android sails past BlackBerry to become the number one smartphone platform

Like watching a semi rumble past from the side of the road, Android has sailed past BlackBerry to become the number on smartphone platform in terms of market share. Nearly one third (31.2%) of US Smart phones now run the Google operating system, while only 30.4% of smartphones ran on BlackBerry during the same period from February 2010 to January 2011. Apple's share of the smartphone pie has remained rather flat during the time, while Microsoft's market share was cut nearly in half, even after the debut of Windows Phone 7. The rise of the Android's platform has occurred in just over two years and can largely be due to Google's open source philosophy which has been adopted by a wide range of smartphone manufactures, but really hit it's stride after Motorola released the Droid in 2009.

Microsoft to pay Nokia $1 billion for Windows Phone 7 handsets

When the news broke that Nokia had entered an alliance with Microsoft to make Windows Phone 7 handsets exclusively, everyone thought it was a headslap moment. Now the word is out as to what Microsoft had to do to sweeten the deal. Microsoft will pay Nokia more than $1 Billion to promote and develop Windows Phone 7 handsets. In return, Nokia will rebate back a fee to Redmond for every copy of Windows used on it's phones. The $1 Billion dollar payment was designed to not only keep Nokia from jumping on the Android bandwagon, but will also help to offset the amount lost by Nokia to focus exclusively on the Windows Phone 7 platform.

Intel says Nokia should have gone with Android

Intel CEO Paul Otellini doesn't think Nokia made the right choice when it came to going with Windows Phone over Android. It's an odd statement from Otellini considering that Nokia and Intel were working together on MeeGo and the move to Windows Phone means that its own MeeGo OS is going by the wayside too.

Nokia Partners with Android Too, So Says Eldar Murtazin

If you're unfamiliar with who Eldar Murtazin is, first and foremost, he is the editor-in-chief Analyst and manager of Mobile-Review.com, and a very well read and followed fellow. What he's got to say is in regards to this mornings news about Nokia teaming up with Microsoft for a Windows Phone 7 handshake heard around the world. As this was occuring, Murtazin was hearing from his inside sources that not only had Nokia made a deal with Microsoft, they'd cut a deal with Google as well at essentially the same time.

Nokia passes on Android because there “are too many players”

Nokia's new CEO and former Microsoft man Stephen Elop has been blunt with workers when he says that the company is standing on a burning platform with regards to MeeGo. All the blunt talk about how poorly Nokia is performing had me hoping that the company would turn to an interesting OS like Android for its smartphones.
