Motorola DROID dominates Android Market on Christmas Day
Despite having been launched appriximately 6 weeks before Christmas Day, the Motorola DROID dominated the action in the Android Market on December 25th. According to Flurry, a company that analyzes mobile app stores, 49% of all Android application sales in the Market ended up on a DROID. The runner-up handset was well behind the DROID as T-Mobile's myTouch 3G was second with 18% of sold apps on the 25th. With 17% and 16% respectively was the HTC Hero (Sprint) and the G1 (T-Mobile). The Android Market as a whole increased sales by 20% from November to December (the iPhone App Store had a 51% during the same period) as DROID users, many of them first time Android owners, loaded apps on their devices. As we previously reported, the Android Market currently houses about 16,000 apps with that number expected by Flurry to rise to as many as 150,000 by next year. Growth in the Android platform is expected to continue to rise sharply in 2010 as more Android devices are launched.
