I recently bought a Google Galaxy Nexus and to say that I am impressed is an understatement. It is a cool phone that epitomizes most of the good things that has made the Android operating system the most popular mobile OS in the world.

A newly released report by research firm Nielsen has significantly shown that Apple is still the top dog when it comes to the smartphone market. The report revealed that Apple is still the top smartphone manufacturer with the largest share in the market.
