Android share up 3% in UK

GfK reports that Android's share of the UK contract (post-pay) market grew 3% in Q1 2010 to reach 13.2%.

Sales of "Advanced Operating System" handsets (smartphones to you and I) accounted for a whopping 66.7% of contract sales in Q2, with latest figures indicating a 73.5% market share. Remember though that a lot of these smartphones are going to be Nokia S60 handsets, where the users may not even realise that they can download apps at all.

Although market share is still quite low, the growth of Android seems to have an unstoppable momentum in the UK market.
