Admob Over the past couple of months, HTC and Motorola delivered a few very important Android devices to the market. Admob collected some numbers on the popularity of the devices in their network.

The Admob graphs shows that activity of the HTC Dream (or G1) is declining over time while devices like the HTC Magic (aimed at the smaller budgets) and HTC Hero continue gradual growth. The real boost however comes from Motorola and their Droid phone (which is only available in the US at the moment). From October to December, Admob reported 97% growth for Android.

When looking deeper at the difference between those two months, HTC’s marketshare is declining at a rapid pace. In October they had a 98% marketshare. In December it was just 56%. Motorola took 39% of the market and 5% went to Samsung.


In October, 84% of the Android traffic on the network originated from the US. In December, this grew to 90%, probably due to the popularity of the Droid.
