Yes, you’re probably all getting tired of hearing about this now, but hey – it’s the truth. Android is continuing to grow at a quite alarming rate. New numbers from Gartner show that the OS has grabbed a 17.2% market share – just behind RIM with 18.2% and soaring above Windows Mobile on 5%.
Compared to last year, when Android was on just 1.8% share and Windows Mobile was on 9.3%, you can see quite clearly how things have changed in recent months. The launch of Windows Phone is just months away, but these numbers aren’t going to change over night. Android has also overtaken Apple, who have only seen a 1.2% increase in market share according to these numbers.
