Technology Consolidation helps... Double-Digit Growth
S. Mohini Ratna,
There was a time when competitive edge was determined by the number of services you had. With the proliferation of technology, it has become possible for everyone to have something for everyone.

Apart from 17,000 patents that Motorola Mobility has in its kitty, the share of Android OS smartphones is expected to touch 22 per cent as against only 9 per cent in 2010. This puts Google on a strong wicket to effectively compete against rivals like Apple, Research In Motion, Microsoft-Nokia and Samsung.
