5 Technologies: Google Android
Can Android take on iPhone? Google's open-source mobile operating system is gaining traction against its popular Apple rival, driven in large part by interest in Motorola's Android-based Droid handset. In a recent ComScore survey, 17 percent of consumers in the market for a smartphone said they plan to buy an Android-based device, compared to 20 percent for the iPhone. Support for a growing developer community means solution providers have a huge opportunity to bring Android devices into the enterprise.
