Android Beats Symbian in Sales for Q4 2010

Quarter 4 of 2010 saw Android beat Symbian as the fastest selling smartphone platform in that quarter. In total, 32.9 million Android handsets were shifted the last quarter of last year. Symbian saw 31 million handsets being shifted.

Although that’s very interesting as it is, what makes it even more amazing is that Q3 saw Android with 20.3 million which shows over a 10 million increase in to quarter 4. Compare that to Symbian, they went from 29.9m which shows just over 1 million in growth.

As smartphone developers prepare more devices to run Android, we should certainly see some more impressive statistics this year. We suspect Google will continue to beat Symbian in the foreseeable future.
