Google Android topples Nokia Symbian as top smartphone platform maker

Google Android has now overtaken Nokia Symbian on the top spot among smartphone platforms beating Apple iPhone on its way up, according to a research company that showed the end of the 10-year reign of Nokia.

Research company Canalys unleashed Monday that the 32.9 million handsets with Google platform (Android, Tapas, and OMS) that were sold last quarter were sufficient to overtake Nokia Symbian with 31 million handsets sold, Reuters reported.

Despite the fact that Nokia still shows great lead as the world’s biggest handset maker, it has proven its weak spots in the realm of smartphone during the past few years.
