Android Smartphone Shipments Grew 886% In Q2 2010

There is no denying that the Android smartphone market is growing at a rapid pace.  Mobile analysis company Canalys released a report about how Nokia is retaining the smart phone leadership position and how the Android platform is growing.

The report claims that Nokia has a 38% market share in the smart phone market.  Nokia shipped 23.8 million smart phones during this past quarter.  This is a 41% growth from one year ago.

Worldwide, the smart phone market grew 64% annually.  The BlackBerry platform is in second place for the smart phone market with an 18% market share.

Google stands out because they grew 886% in Q2 2010 year-on-year.  This is largely due to the constant release of new Android phones powered by hardware partners HTC, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, LG, and Samsung.
