Android to overtake Windows by 2016

Written by Fudzilla staff



2.3 billion units?


Android seems poised to overtake Windows as the dominant OS on the planet. It all feels a bit like plucky mammals eating dinosaurs roasted in the KT event, but if Gartner got its figures right, by 2016 Android should take the lead.
