AdMob just released some statistics detailing the mobile web space detailing usage, device market share, and other data that shines a rather flattering light on the Android platform. Considering it's been only a year since the T-Mobile G1 first launched and considering again that most of that year was spent with only one device, it's rather impressive how quickly Android has shot up the statistics. According to AdMob, 20% of US mobile web traffic comes from Android devices, which is a solid second in overall rankings. Imagine how much it'll be when recent Android devices like the DROID and Hero actually are available for longer than a month.
In another graphic (after the jump), it provides a breakdown of web traffic among all Android devices. Here's the nuts and bolts:
- HTC Dream - 36%
- Motorola DROID - 24%
- HTC Magic - 21%
- HTC Hero - 8%
- Motorola CLIQ - 6%
- Other - 5%
Considering that the DROID has only been available for a few weeks, the fact that it's already gained so much ground on the other, more entrenched Android devices is simply stunning. These numbers continue to prove that the DROID is an out and out success that will undoubtedly change the entire landscape.
And though the numbers already look great for Android right now, we're expecting them to be dramatically different in the next couple of months. Android is already driving a considerable amount of mobile web traffic and it's only going to grow.
