Android sales up over 800% YOY

RIM, Apple, and Nokia also saw sales growht YOY, but Android’s growth rate is 14x the next highest (Apple’s).  Insiders have been quietly marvelling at the sheer abundance of new Android phone models in the pipeline since mid 2009, but now we’re seeing the market’s positive response to these new handsets.  This is good news for companies looking to reach their customers with mobile services, since Android phones have really good web browsers and make for a terrific app platform.
