Kick. Ass. Glad to see Android doing so well. To put this in perspective, at this rate 200 million Android devices will be activated this year alone. In the meantime, Apple sold somewhere in the neighborhood of 25 million phones and tablets last quarter. At that rate they'll sell 100 million devices this year. the gap widens. :)

Android vs iOS

its not about individual devices, its about OS sales.

Considering the competition all of the individual phones have against each other, along with different flavors of software, different hardware capabilities and price points, weaker marketing, and regional availability and viability in the eyes of the consumer, Android is still doing pretty damn well.

That's awesome! Cool list! Users can choose between all kinds of phones to fit their needs.

Androids have phones for people who need rugged phones that are build to be military-spec for water proofing, dust proofing and shock resistance.

They also have phones for gamers with dedicated game controls.

They also have phones that are built by companies that build digital cameras, so you'll get the best picture quality ever in a phone (Sony).

They also have PTT phones for business that need that type of communication.

The choices are endless.

With Apple, you get two choices: white iPhone 4 or black iPhone 4
