A new report out of Taiwan suggests that Chinese manufacturer Lenovo could soon become the next big thing in the Android industry. It is said that the company is on its way to overtake LG to claim the No. 2 spot as the leading Android smartphone manufacturer. The sources credit the acquisition of Motorola Mobility for the expected surge in marketshare.


Android’s share of the worldwide smartphone market increased yet again during the second quarter of 2013, while the iPhone suffered a slight dip, according to the latest figures from IDC. But Research Manager Ramon Llamas is confident that Apple’s smartphone will recapture more users later this year when the Cupertino company launches the iPhone 5S.


Even though Android has been dominating the smartphone marketshare, the tablet wars are a completely different story as the iPad is clearly the most popular device while all Android tablets are struggling to gain significant usage.
