As I’ve said before in other places: statistics are cool. So here are some numbers for you! These are available to us developers in the Android market.


1 HTC Desire 21.0%
2 Samsung Galaxy S 8.2%
3 HTC Desire HD 7.9%
4 HTC Wildfire 7.5%
5 Motorola Droid X 4.3%
6 HTC Sensation 4G 3.3%
7 HTC Desire S 3.3%
8 SEMC Xperia X10 2.3%
9 Samsung Galaxy S 2.3%
10 Samsung Galaxy S2 2.3%

As you can see, the HTC-Desire is having a big lead! Of course people are running Android on those devices (No, really? Yeah, really :) ). More than 50% run 2.2, but there’s also a 1.5 hidden in the userbase somewhere:

OS versions

1 Android 2.2 51.5%
2 Android 2.3.3 26.2%
3 Android 2.1 12.8%
4 Android 1.6 1.7%
5 Android 1.5 1.0%
6 Android 2.3 0.7%
7 Android 3.0 0.3%


Google launched their Android Market on the web two days ago. What I personally like is being able to browse through my installed Android apps on my computer and find new ones to install. You can buy apps on the web and they wil automatically be installed on your phone. There is also the option of leaving a user review for an app.

Of course we immediately looked to see how AndroBlip was featured there! :-)

AndroBlip on the Android Market on the web

Hopefully, this new way of finding apps for Android will make it easier to leave comments or suggestions for our app. We hope to see some user reviews soon!

There is also an option for us to add video’s to the app description, like for example Winamp did on their Market page. Suggestions for making a (fun?) video are welcome!
