Web browsing explodes on Android with a 54.8% gain in December
Android has steadily picked up stream in the mobile web browsing market and has taken a huge leap towards the top spot in mobile web browsing during November to December. Android’s worldwide trend has shown some solid growth throughout the year, but the results found by NetApplications in December can be attributed to the Motorola DROID’s ad campaign – additionally three out of the four major wireless carriers in the country now offers some kind of Android powered handset.

Although the total market share that mobile handsets have on web browsing is still at 1.3%, it’s the biggest victory for mobile devices with all major mobile platforms attaining large percentage gains – this includes Android at a 54.8% gain. That figure alone easily is doubled and trumps the next closest competition. With Android handsets seemingly being released on a consistent basis, it’s no wonder why the platform will continue see growth in the future.
