V3 News reports:
Google's Android operating system overtook Nokia in the fourth quarter of 2010 with over 33 million shipments compared to Nokia's 31 million, according to the latest figures from Canalys.

The analyst firm said that Android saw a whopping 615 per cent increase on its fourth quarter shipments for 2009, as LG, Samsung, Acer and HTC embraced the platform. HTC and Samsung accounted for almost 45 per cent of all shipments.

This gave Google a 32.9 per cent market share for the fourth quarter, pushing Nokia into second place with 30.6 per cent.

Apple shipped 16.2 million units to give it a 16 per cent market share, while RIM lost a noticeable 5.6 per cent to drop to 14.4 per cent.

Microsoft was the biggest loser, with shipments dropping by 20 per cent possibly as consumers waited for Windows Phone 7.

Pfft I think someone's in denial..... a similarly priced Android runs circles around its competitors.

Having voices in your head is normal. Listening to them, common. Arguing, acceptable. However, when you lose the argument, you're in trouble.
