According to recent reports from US-based stat-gatherers NPD Group, Android OS was more than 33% of all the smartphones sold in America during the second quarter of 2010. Presently, while records say that there are over 5.3 billion mobile subscribers across the Global Village (this is almost equal to 77% of the world’s population)…smartphone sales have showed the strongest growth as compared to other wireless and electronic communication devices. As these statistics keep soaring…Android phone sales are sure to move up at a good pace.
