Android Already Makes Up 5 Percent of US Smartphone Web Traffic Marketshare

Amazingly (or predictably?), Android has already made its mark on the mobile market. In only a few months time, Android has managed to build up 5% of the US smartphone web traffic.

This could be viewed as surprising to some because the T-Mobile G1 is still relatively new to the game and that it's locked onto the smallest carrier in the United States. On the flip side, it could be an obvious conclusion because the web browsing experience on the Android is better than any other mobile device (only the iPhone could argue).

So does this chart tell us that Android is wildly popular or that the Android browser, though new, is just that good? We're going to lean toward the latter because we still don't think Android has really taken off yet. Let's see this data in a year after more Android devices release and tell us what the pie chart marketshare looks like then. We expect an even bigger, more impressive slice.

What do you guys think?
