50% of Smartphones Sold Last Quarter in China Running Android
Chinese consumers purchased 8 to 10 million smartphones last quarter, up from an estimated 2 to 3 million in the same period last year. And according to Morgan Keegan analyst, Tavis McCourt, the bulk of them ran Android.
Digital Daily tells us that throughout 2010, the Chinese mobile market was led by Symbian and Windows Mobile, but it seems that has changed, and looking into 2011, Android has secured a huge spot in their market.
Oddly enough, in 2009, there were zero Android phones sold in China, and now, fifty percent of smartphones sold are running our little green friend’s OS.
The site also mentions that with the release of the iPhone 4, there may be an increase in Apple sales in China, but prior to Wi-Fi capable 3Gs or the iPhone 4, the Chinese didn’t take too well to it.
What do you think? Any of our readers in China sporting an Android?
