Report: Android O/S Sales Up To 9.6pct in Q1 [pcworld.com]
Google's Android looks unstoppable, with quarterly sales steamrolling the iPhone in the U.S. and now Windows Mobile globally, but it's only the eye of the storm for the young operating system.


Gartner's latest statistics show big gains for Android's quarterly sales worldwide, jumping from 1.6 percent in the first quarter of 2009 to 9.6 percent during the same period this year. That puts the OS ahead of Microsoft's Windows Mobile, but still behind the iPhone, Blackberry, and Symbian phones. Besides Android, only the iPhone has gained sales share since Q1 2009, says Gartner.
