Not just in numbers either, as the platform is beginning to steal developers from other platforms along with getting some very cool phones on the horizon. First up is the decision from mobile browser developer SkyFire to drop Blackberry development in support for Android. This quote from the company sums up the reasoning best:
We see Android as a fast-rising ecosystem, with a rich, totally open developer environment, a healthy app market and a healthy advertising and search ecosystem. The Android OS has a tremendous amount of interest from handset makers and carriers, and also has a strong need for making the explosion of video more network optimized (Skyfire’s wheelhouse).
Along with that excellent news for the Droids out there, but Verizon is continuing to show support for the platform by announcing the Droid Incredible. HTC is the manufacturer of the phone and it boasts similar specs to the Nexus One from Google in an 8 MP camera and Sense UI. The phone will be in stores on April 29th with pre-orders starting today.
