Android bests Apple becoming 3rd most popular Smartphone OS in the World.

Android has grown rapidly this year, it's growth in popularity has also benefited many of the phone vendors that supported the OS, namely HTC who now sits on the 8ths slot largely due to Andriod.

Original article

Quote:
In the smartphone operating system (OS) market, Android expanded rapidly in the second quarter of 2010, overtaking Apple’s iPhone OS to become the third-most-popular OS in the world (see Table 2). In the U.S, it also overtook RIM’s OS to become the No. 1 smartphone OS in this region. “A non-exclusive strategy that produces products selling across many communication service providers (CSPs), and the backing of so many device manufacturers, which are bringing more attractive devices to market at several different price points, were among the factors that yielded its growth this quarter,” said Ms. Milanesi.(more...)

Quote:
HTC made its debut in the top 10 worldwide ranking, holding the No. 8 position with 139.1 percent growth year-on-year. This reflects the popularity of its Android portfolio but also a more aggressive branding strategy compared to the same period in 2009.

I have edited the thread title to indicate that it is specifically Smartphones you're talking about, not computers in general.
