Motorola DROID is the most popular Android phone
AdMob's latest metrics report, based on a survey of 12.7 million Android phones as of May 31st, shows that the Motorola DROID is the most popular Android model. With a 22% share of the Android pie, the DROID beat out the 16% that was captured by the HTC Hero. The rest of the top 5 is populated by HTC models, the Dream, the Magic and the Droid Eris, each with 8% to 10% of the market. The Nexus One was out of the top 5 with just a 2% share. Because the report was dated prior to the launch of the EVO 4G, the nation's first 4G enabled device was not on the list although based on its high sales for the first month of its existence, the handset should be in the top 5 next month. As for manufacturers, HTC has a controlling 53% share with Motorola's 30% mark good for second. Samsung's 9% makes the Korean based firm a distant third. Upcoming launches that could make a quick impact on the top 5 include Motorola's DROID X and DROID 2 (launching July 15th and August 23rd, respectively) and the 4 variants for the Samsung Galalxy S that each of the top U.S. carriers will be offering (Verizon Fascinate, AT&T Captivate, T-Mobile Vibrant and Sprint Epic 4G). As we reported, the Vibrant will be the first Galaxy out of the chute in the States, launching July 21st. 67% of Android users are in North America while China is second with 13% of the world's users of Google's open source OS
