For those wondering how Android will grow to be the world’s #2 operating system by the year 2013, see below. Any guesses on what the growth will be by 2011?

    That's bad statistics. Android devices weren't even available to order until Q4 2008, so looking at Android sales over the entire year and comparing them to last year, a time when the phones were available all 12 months, is misleading.
