The Android Marketplace

Android Marketplace

This is the marketplace that could be taking Apple’s Appstore off its high horse. The ever growing Android Marketplace was once a dream, then an idea then a small reality, but slowly but surely it grew and then it started to grow faster and faster until eventually it was just behind Apple’s Appstore if not past it. The Android Marketplace is a marketplace for all Android devices such as Phones, Tablets and even Google TV (which shall be receiving the marketplace via an update soon) also since the Marketplace is available on many more devices that Apple (as they make their own devices) developers might want to be able to reach out to many more people. Also Google is pretty awesome at making things work (except from Google buzz)

So with both of these Appstores growing which mobile OS will you use? tell us in the comments.
