    We have yet again another market analysis showing the explosive growth and dominance of the unstoppable Android. Gartner's Q1 2011 analysis shows Android with over 36 Million Units sold and a 36% global market share. This is compared to Symbian in second place with 27 Million and 27.4%, and iOS with 16.8 Million and 16.8%. RIM, Microsoft and HP round out the bottom. To put it in perspective, if you compare 'Andy's' same results at this time last year, he jumped 26 percentage points at an almost 600% growth rate!
