The sales numbers keep pouring in, and it is nothing but good news for Android. Backing that up are ad impression statistics from mobile ad firms, and Millennial Media is reporting huge growth for Android. Overall, Android devices accounted for 26 percent of all devices that viewed ads, and increase of seven percent month-over-month. As for ad impressions, Android saw a 39 percent jump month-over-month, which would indicate that people are using their phones to browse the web more than ever. The most striking number is that Android ad impressions have exploded by a whopping 996 percent since the beginning of the year.
In addition, the Motorola became the third largest manufacturer and the venerable Droid became the phone with the second highest mobile impressions with nine percent, presumably losing the top spot to the iPhone. Any way you cut it, these numbers are great and show the strength of the Android browsing experience across all the carriers. Also, it reinforces just how vital the Droid and Verizon's marketing push have been to Android's successes as a platform. Click past the link for some additional bits of information.
