Android takes more Web consumption market share According to new charts from web analytics firm Quantcast, the Android operating system continues to gain market share in mobile OS share of Web consumption, and at a blistering pace, at the expense of the iPhone OS and the RIM BlackBerry OS.
Despite the growth, the iPhone remains the clear leader, but its share seems to have saturated, with recent trends showing negative growth for share over the last year.

Between February 2009 and February 2010, Android saw 95.3 percent growth, while RIM saw 7.5 percent growth, and the iPhone OS saw -10.2 percent.

Android is the absolute best, apple will have trouble maintaining the #1 spot and wont be long until Android dethrones the iphone.

When Andriod came out I didn't care at all for it. I was only interested in Windows Mobile. However since there are a lot of nice phones (HTC Desire, Motorolla Droid) that are using Andriod, I might pick one up soon when/if the Desire comes to Canada. I've been putting off buying a new phone for a year now, I'm not going to wait any longer for WinMo 7 to come out.
