    I found a stat on the android developer pages. Android 2.01 users makeup 20.4% of the people that have used the market recently. That's pretty impressive considering that the Droid is the only phone with 2..01 (I think) and it's only been out 2 months.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the VZW 4th quarter results since introduction of the Moto Droid and Eris. Everything looks quite impressive.

    You have to admit, the Droid really took off.

    a sales mgr from ny vzw store was at my local vzw store and I over heard them discussing the droid craze. They was talking about how it is surpassing expectations.

    The droid craze is going to continue to grow as I see more people with droids. It is compensating for the disappointing bbstorm2 sales. Actually storm 2 users are returning them for droids.

    I would be interested in how many 'active' Android phones are currently running (i.e. still being used). That would give us a good idea of how well, or poor the Android OS (and for that matter the Droid) is coming in terms of market infiltration.

    Note: I specified 'active' devices and not 'sales' because with devices like this there is likely a LARGE number of users that have updated to newer phones and/or returned to other devices. Sales numbers would be to misleading. Also with the Droid specifically there have been a TON of returns and exchanges so sales (in this case purchase info) would not be an accurate representation of how many devices are actually being used.
