Enterprise Mobility: Top 10 Android Smartphones to Be Thankful for
Thanksgiving is that holiday that people spend time reflecting on what they are thankful for. Life, health, a growing family, employment, success and a new car are frequently high on the list of things to be thankful for. Or perhaps it's the generous parent, spouse or significant other they hope will buy them the phone they want for Christmas. That's where Black Friday comes in. The day after Thanksgiving marks the start of the holiday shopping season. Fortunately, for those who don't want an Apple iPhone, there is a veritable cornucopia of Android handsets to choose from in 2010, which has easily been the year of the Android platform as it rose to 20 percent market share in the U.S. Google, however, will be hard-pressed to keep its market momentum going in 2011 if Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 handsets catch on at AT&T and T-Mobile. This year eWEEK tested many Android smartphones from the likes of Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile. We sum up most of them here, along with pictures of the Android handsets we believe have come to define the open-source mobile platform's experience. These devices captured the essence of Android, offering voice search, voice commands and several other Google features rooted in mobile, local and social interests.
