The popularity of Android has been illustrated by the latest research, which could tempt people to trade-in a mobile and invest in a model that runs on the platform.
Statistics from iSuppli show manufacturers of devices that use Google's operating system make up the majority of the top ten fastest-growing companies in the industry.
Top of the pile is Nokia, which has recently been in the news after releasing the E7 and the long-awaited N8 to rave reviews.
The Finnish brand had 39.7 per cent of the market share in the second quarter of 2010, a rise of 11.6 per cent.
Also on the list were Research in Motion, which provides the technology for BlackBerry phones, as well as Samsung and HTC.
Tina Teng, senior analyst for wireless communications at iSuppli, says: "Every brand that has put effort into designing smart phones using Google's mobile operating system is riding the Android wave."
