iPhone dominance 'will take time to challenge'

18 January 2010 — 11:10 AM

The dominance of the Apple iPhone will take time to be challenged, it has been suggested.

Despite a range of new smartphones expected to be released by mobile manufacturers in 2010, which could encourage mobile recycling, experts have stated that it will take time to build up support for a new handset.

Leigh Geary, from CoolSmartPhone.com, said: "In a marketplace flooded with iPhones it will take time for any handset to compete; even if it was the best phone in the world it still couldn't gain that much momentum in an iPhone world."

He added that the other handsets need time to develop as the iPhone has greatly increased on the 50,000 apps it had after a year and the Android market will look to improve on the 20,000 apps that it currently has.

Mobile manufacturer LG Electronics has revealed that its hopes are high for Android phones, which with their "user-friendly and open-access operating system" are expected to make up more than half of all LG's new smartphone releases.
