What's most amazing to me is the percentage of increase in such a short period. Android phones going from a 9% market share to a 13% market share is an increase of 44.4% - in just 3 MONTHS!
Now I'm not suggesting that the current rate will continue - but IF IT DID:
By the end of August: android = 18.8% of mkt, apple = 23.4% of mkt
By the end of Nov: android = 27.1% of mkt, apple 22.5
By the end of Feb '11: android = 39.1%, apple = 21.67%
So Android passes MS for third place by August.
Android passes Apple for second place by November
Android passes Blackberry for #1 position by Feb 2011
Again, I'm not suggesting the current growth rate for android will continue - but that is an AWESOME growth rate! Imagine if it DID continue!

If you cant laugh at that, then I am sorry...hehe
I'm surprised MS has like 13% share. I had no idea.
I have to admit, if MS came out with a really outstanding phone I'd have to consider it because of the potential work integration. But on the other hand, I like free stuff and being basically forced to pay for MS upgrades is not at all appealing.
