Android could increase memory cards demand 5 August 2011 15:32:08
Memory cards could be in demand in the near future for the growing number of individuals making use of Android handsets.
According to Stuff magazine editor Will Findlater, unlike Apple, the operating system (OS) is able to appeal to a wide variety of consumers.
"There are Android phones from all the different manufacturers catering for all different needs and budgets, from the very affordable sub-£100 handsets to the £500 plus powerhouses," he said.
Mr Findlater added that the level of support given to the OS from manufacturers is a key factor in its success.
The comments follow research conducted by Canalys indicating that in the second quarter of this year 48 per cent of the worldwide smartphone market was controlled by Android.
A study conducted by Ofcom recently indicated that 81 per cent of adults leave their smartphone on at all times, with 27 per cent of people now owning such a device.
