Android set to be number 1 OS in Europe next year – IDC

According to research agency IDC, Android will surpass Nokia’s Symbian and become Europe’s top smartphone OS next year. It has already reached 23% of the total smartphones sales in Western Europe in the third quarter.

“The iPhone was last year’s hot device and now people are looking for something different,” said IDC analyst Francisco Jeronimo, who is based in London. The Galaxy S is seen as offering similar feel, function, and third-party applications to an iPhone for a lower price, he added.
