According to Gartner Research Android App Market is prospering and increasing impressively. Obviously such a great popularity and openness of the Android platform might bring it to the top.
Due to the research statistics, the app download speed is 103 Android applications each second. The number is fantastic indeed. So Android has clearly become the greatest competitor for Apple. At the moment AppStore provides over 300,000 apps, and Android Market is represented by around 200,000 applications. However looking at today’s situation we can predict that in a few more years Google Android will overtake Apple in this App Market competition.
