    Well I'd say its because the android open source model without limitations developers are free to develop to their hearts content and in doing so have made awesome features available drawing in customers to the android world this enables even more development
    I do beloved android is the only mobile that can natively run a desktop os on a phone because of open source licensing
    Also being based off of Java and c++
    Wich have been around awhile helps to
    Oh yeah also freedom to customize EVERYTHING

    For crying out loud they are putting android on a game console
    and if that doesn't represent strong revenue for a OS that's been around awhile I don't know what does

    Android it literally takeing over the mobile world

    Since android is an open source platform developers need not struggle hard with coding. They can modify the codings that are available for free according to the applications that are being developed. This is one of the vital advantage for the developers to go with android platform.
