AdMob, the market research and analytics company that Google will be acquiring soon has just released the metrics report for October 2009. This study includes the market share figures and mobile phone analytics for all major brands in the telecom industry. Let’s have a look at how Android’s doing:
Android Phones now stand for 20% of the mobile web traffic for smartphones and, as the image above shows, the Android device driving most traffic is HTC Dream, with 36%, followed by Motorola Droid, with 24% and HTC Magic, with 21%. Motorola Droid’s performance is pretty impressive, considering that the handset has only been available for a few weeks.
If you thought that these figures were impressive, wait till you see the following chart, showing that the iPhone OS brings 55% of the mobile web traffic for smartphones. This means, basically that Apple and Google are dominating the mobile web. Any hope for a third contender?
