    Millennial Media released their third quarter marketing research data. Their data reflects the number of ads/impressions that are viewed on mobile devices. This criterion obviously gives more of an indicator of how much a device is used as opposed to how many there are out there, but it is still statistically significant for judging the relative growth of a product. Apparently, ads/impressions for Android devices doubled over the number of iOS devices. This is based on the quarter that ended last month, and shows that Android accounted for 56% of impressions. As you can see from the pie chart, Apple had 28%, while RIM dropped to a paltry 13% share, with Microsoft and Symbian sticking to their minimal 1%.

    If you rank specific devices or manufacturers, instead of Operating Systems, things look different with Apple's iPhone topping a couple of lists. It's interesting to note how many folks are still using older devices, but not really surprising in retrospect. Here are some more lists below:

    Interesting, since I think the last time I saw this data, maybe 1Q11 or 4Q10 Android and IOS were neck-and-neck. I wonder how double the ad-impressions translates to profits for developers, since clearly they make less purchase revenue on Android.

    Also, I wonder if this is US-only. Because while many questioned the data that Sammie outsold Apple in Q3, the data would suggest HTC and Moto outsold Sammie, as well.

    I love how Apple has somehow gotten the IPhone counted as one unit in these surveys, eventhough it actually represents 3-4 different models sold in the market at different price points. You might as well combine Moto's Droid, Droid 2, and Droid X (or Sammie's Galaxy S line).

    And how is LG Optimus #2? That came out of nowhere.
