    Canalys Report Indicates - Android Takes the World Crown!


    'Andy' is officially the number one smartphone platform on the planet! According to the chart below compiled by Canalys, a world-wide leader in market research analysis, the former crown-holder was Nokia Symbian OS, but Android has overtaken it. As you can see from the chart, as of Q4 of 2009, Android only had 8.7 percent with Nokia at 44.4 percent, and Apple's iOS at 16.3 percent. But, in just one year's time, as of Q4 2010, King Andy rocketed to 32.9 percent with Nokia plummeting to 30.6 percent, and Apple pretty much hovered, holding out at 16 percent. Android smartphone shipments peaked at 32.9 million units in Q4 and Nokia’s Symbian platform fell slightly behind to 31 million. Canalys indicated that overall, the smartphone market flourished, growing 89 percent in a year, with total vendor sales hitting 101.2 million smartphones.


    Hail to the King Baby! Couldn't resist the 'DNF' reference... since it is coming out in May, and I'm sure the Duke uses an Android phone! dancedroid

    Here's what makes me laugh about this (and no, it isn't a slam on Android)....iFanboys will say how they have so many more apps and people view their market as 'superior' for that fact sometimes. Now, we see where Android has a larger percentage of all smart phones, but you'll get the same people saying that more doesn't necessarily mean better.

    Starting to wonder if they even know what they are spewing half the time. I'm just sayin....

    Shows that those fanboys are a bunch of hippocrites. (Not all, just some, so no offense to any specific people.)

    Just to play devils advocate here, so if I have 12 KIA's they are better than the Bugatti Veyron I also have?

    To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.
