Android Market Share Dominated by Motorola Droid and Verizon
It would appear even though there are now numerous Android platform devices out there, the Android Market is still dominated by the Motorola Droid smartphone and Verizon, which no doubt is at least partly due to Verizon’s $100 million Droid campaign.
According to an article penned by Marin Perez of Intomobile, recent data from Chitika shows that the Motorola Droid commands the largest market share along with Verizon commanding the largest market share when it comes to carrier Android distribution.
According to the figures, the Motorola Droid commands 33.5 percent of the market with its closest rival being the HTC Hero with 9.9 percent, and Verizon Wireless commands 48 percent of the market with their closest rival being T-Mobile with 23 percent followed by Sprint at 19 percent.
Following up behind the Motorola Droid and HTC Hero are the HTC Droid Eris with 8.2 percent, the T-Mobile G1, the original Android handset with 8.1 percent, then the T-Mobile myTouch 3G with 6.3 percent while the Nexus One only manages just 2 percent, but is quickly being caught up by the new HTC EVO 4G which sits just behind at 1.93 percent.
