Google's Android platform has dethroned Nokia's Symbian as the world's most popular smartphone platform in the last quarter of 2010. According to research firm Canalys, shipments of Android smartphones reached 32.9 million last quarter, compared to 31 million Symbian-based smartphones. This marks the first time Symbian hasn't taken the top spot, TG Daily reports.


Nokia remains the world's top individual smartphone vendor, but the company is at a place where change must be considered. Nokia chief executive, Stephen Elop, hinted that the company could consider taking on another platform, which experts have speculated would be Android, says The Wall Street Journal.
