Analyst house Gartner predicts Android will increase its market share to 14% of the global smartphone market in 2012 and become the number one global mobile operating system by 2014, surpassing Windows Mobile, BlackBerry and iPhone devices. Android is already the operating system behind some of the market's most popular mobile phones including the Google Nexus One, HTC Desire and Motorola Milestone 2. Android is also the operating system for a large number of tablet or pad style devices that will be hitting the market this year and next.
Mike Hebden, Head of Casino for Microgaming says: "The interest around Android v2.2 is massive, the Froyo user interface and experience is comparable to that of the iPhone and the platform is rapidly growing in popularity with developers and consumers. Android has more momentum than any other platform and is largely driving the increased sales of smartphones. A number of pad style devices will also soon be running Android v2.2 .”
Daniel Goss, MD for Betway, says, "Microgaming enables us to offer our customers the most dynamic and entertaining casino games on the market's latest platforms. It's a winning combination that has helped us grow our customer base and mobile casino business. A successful mobile casino business needs to support Android, and we are delighted to be able to meet this demand."
