The curtains for the year 2011 is dropping and in few hours 2011 will come to an end. The year 2011 was a very eventful one for the mobile phone industry. We lost one of our beloved legends of the tech world Steve Jobs. We saw how smartphones have embraced the dual-core processors and are ready to embrace the quad-core processors in the coming year. We saw the mobile operating systems such as Android, iOS, Blackberry OS evolving and innovating constantly. We saw quite a few mergers such as Nokia + Microsoft, Google + Motorola, Microsoft + Skype. We witnessed how a tech company launched tablets and smartphones powered by a original WebOS and in the same year decided to get out of the mobility business altogether. Have a look at the 2011 Timeline compiled by the 91mobiles.com team. We sign off for the year 2011 and wishing you all a very happy new year 2012.
