Reality check:
Android's on between less than 1% - 2% market share, Symbian's on 41%.
Android's now selling 200,000 phones a day, Symbian's selling 300,000. You do the maths.

Also, Android is technically immature, limited in a variety of technical ways, runs on a virtual machine, gets the CPU to do all the work, and NEEDS that high end expensive CPU to give a half decent user experience. Symbian is the most mature and technically sophisticated OS out there and leads the pack by a LONG way in running well on cheap hardware. With the UI improvements of Symbian^3 and beyond i wouldn't rate Android's chances in being a threat to Symbian.

That said it is definitely a good thing for Nokia/Symbian to have some competition at all price points.
