According to recent research carrier out by Canalys, Google’s Android OS over took Symbian in the last quarter of 2010, with a total reported shipment of 32.9 million Android handsets.
For the same period Symbian shipments reached a total of 31 million smartphones, and what makes it even more interesting is that Symbian handset shipments were only up by one million over the same period in quarter three.
Google’s Android OS saw a larger jump for the quarter with an increase of over 10 million over quarter three. No doubt these figures will continue to rise in 2011, as there are a wide range of new Google devices launching this year as well as the tablet version of their mobile OS, Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
