The growth of Android has been remarkable; a few weeks ago, we reported on Android's staggering Q2 numbers year-on-year.
Now, a report from DigiTimes suggests that the total number of Android shipments worldwide will surpass 55 million, which would be a 561% growth from last year.
Android's share of the worldwide smartphone market has risen from less than 5% in 2009 to 13.8% in the first half of 2010 and is projected to reach 24.5% in the second half to become the second most popular smartphone platform, according to Lin.
DigiTimes also provided some interesting statistics on worldwide smartphone growth. The total number of Android devices shipped this year is predicted to top 280 million, which is a 57% growth rate from 2009.
Smartphones are only going to become more prevalent and continue their rapid growth rate. Android should see that growth continue too as manufacturers devote more resources to the OS. [DigiTimes]
