By the end of the year, Gartner research firm say open source Android will be the number one mobile operating system.

According to predictions by research firm Gartner, open source Android will be the top mobile operating system by the end of this year.

"Gartner's predictions are based on Android's current growth trajectory, which has been explosive as of late," reports Ars Technica's Jacqui Cheng. "This year has already been filled with reports from other firms, such as AdMob and comScore, about Android's rise to the top at the expense of RIM and Apple, and there are undoubtedly more tales to come as Android phones continue to flood the marketplace."

Considering that the smartphone market is going to explode in the coming years, the other vendors will do well too, but Google is positioning itself to be the top operating system manufacturer.
