Posted Mar 6, 2014

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android is the most used smartphone platform in the world right now and its adoption grew at a rapid pace. Speaking at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference, Google executive Nikesh Arora was quoted as saying this:

?I mean, look, in the history of operating systems, I think Android has been the quickest and most successful adoption of an operating system in the world. So you just sort of stop, take pause and say, oh my God, that?s crazy. Nobody could have ever predicted that we?re going to get an operating system adopted in an industry, which has so many different OEMs, manufacturing with their own operating systems having adopted around the world.?
