Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Motorola Droid Razr and HTC Rezound Releases Make November 'Android Month'

Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Motorola Droid Razr and HTC Rezound Releases Make November 'Android Month'

After a month of iPhone in October with the unveiling and release of the iPhone 4S, November seems to be the month of Android, with three Android handsets scheduled to release.

The HTC Rezound is expected to launch on Nov. 3 and release on Nov. 10, while the Motorola Droid Razr and Samsung Galaxy Nexus are expected to release later in the month.

The Droid Razr is currently available for pre-sale.

Industry experts project that the three Android smartphones will be stiff competition for the iPhone 4S.

Android is known to be the most popular mobile platform in the world due to its availability on a vast range of different handsets.

The Samsung Galaxy S2, whose popularity has garnered it the name "iPhone Killer," has sold over 10 million handsets worldwide since its international release in April. In conjunction with its predecessor the Galaxy S, the handsets have sold 30 million units worldwide.

The Galaxy Nexus is expected to be a another consumer favorite as it is the first smartphone to run Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, the company's latest OS.

The Droid Razr will be released with the Android 2.3, Gingerbread OS, but will receive an Ice Cream Sandwich update in 2012.

There is currently no word as to whether the Rezound will run Gingerbread or Ice Cream Sandwich.

The Rezound, Droid Razr and Galaxy Nexus all have dual-core processors and large high-resolution displays with 1080p video recording. The Galaxy Nexus has a 5-megapixel camera while the Droid Razr and Rezound are said to have 8-megapixel cameras.

Since its release on Oct. 14, the iPhone 4S has sold over 4 million handsets.

However, a recently released report by Strategy Analytics names Android as the top producer of smartphones in the world, while Apple is in second place.
