On the heels of Apple reporting record profits last week, the news this week belonged to Android. Although iOS is still the favorite, Android is beginning to look like a primary target for innovative developers as the better platform. Predictions also saw Android leapfrogging the Apple App store in size by this August.

Articles based around mobile behavior also made their way around the web this week. The iPad is still king of all tablets and Forrester mobile Analyst Thomas Husson argued that the mobile app versus mobile web debate is irrelevant because heavy apps users are also heavy mobile web users.

Finally, Microsoft Bing was announced as the default search engine for Research in Motion’s (RIM) tablet, the Blackberry Playbook.
