Smartphone purchase intentions

These last few months have seen nearly exponential growth for Android as a platform, and we have seen the numbers to prove it.

The numbers, shown above, show a 7 percentage point jump for Android purchase intent in September compared to back in June. This is a huge increase over September of 2009, when the number stood at just 6 percent.
