    The above video truly showcases in a visual way the astonishing proliferation of Android across the U.S. and world! At certain points in the video it gives a countdown timer for the launch of some of the big 'flagship' Android smartphones, and you can see things really start to 'pop'. It's both beautiful and terrifying to behold; Beautiful, because of the colorful flourish expressed in the graphical depictions of Androids being born to their new respective families, but terrifying because it is slightly reminiscent of some deadly virus or zombie outbreak spreading across the globe. :D

    Don't forget to watch it in HD 1080p mode and go full screen... well worth it.

    Products need good marketing and I think Android has done well with their marketing. After that, you need people using them, showing friends and having big launches. That too happened and now its exploding. I see a lot of Android phones in the wild these days as opposed to when the Droid came out. It was all iPhone everywhere. <3 my DroidX.

    The effects in that video would make for an interesting live wallpaper!

    Exactly, the marketing was the key, to the OG's and the Droid Brand success. People used to be like, "Oh this phone is like an iPhone..." now they say, "This is a Droid phone..." whether it is a Samsung, EVO or whatever and people get it.
