Yep, also android is built on top of linux kernel so the maturity and the community are established. It is becoming the preferred choice of developers.

Agree with t.alex for the most part but I think it all comes down to the way the apps run (similar between OS's), what apps are available (similar) and cost (similar). With the open platform that is Android it means more suppliers of HW (more types of solutions to meet more needs) and competion within this community (controlling costs).

Probably the open source system and application development make it the favourite choice?

Expected this. This is happening when there isnt any decent Android tablet in the market. With so many tablets getting released by the yearend, I guess Android market share could easily double. BTW with the new windows phone 7 OS getting released this month, there is going to be a redistribution.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
