    According to Canalys Android outsold both Rim (32.1%) and Apple(21.7%) this quarter with 34% of the market share in sales.

    Congrats Android!:D

    Also data indicates that they have outsold the iPhone globally as well, but I've been told that, and don't have access to the data to confirm it.

    Dang, I don't think the iPhone ever had a bigger share than RIM, even though everyone acts like Apple was the leader in sales. This is very impressive for Android to do something Apple has never done.
     
  3. Who woulda thought that something released on multiple carriers and hardware platforms would outsell something released on one?

    yup. And RIM isn't tied to AT&T. It's available everywhere.

    Here's the way I see it. Android's success is not simply that it is on more carriers and models. It's that one of those carriers is Verizon and they play to win. Droid does.

    I bet that's what made Android really take off in the US. Verizon is a far larger network than AT&T, so its pretty much available anywhere within the US, as opposed to the iPhone which only gets 3G service in major cities and areas and has far more limited availability. Not to mention the Droid marketing campaign really helps in boosting presence of Android.

    What really made Android take off was Verizon's ad campaign. It really drove Android into people's hands.
