Smartphones sold in 2010
Smartphones sold in 2010
This chart represents worldwide smartphone sales to end users (by Operating System in thousands of units). The major winner here is Android, which grew 888.8 percent in 2010. Android sales in the fourth quarter of 2010 were driven by broad availability of many high-end products from HTC (Desire range, Incredible and EVO), Samsung (Galaxy S) and Motorola (Droid X, Droid 2). In addition, the iOS software also gained popularity. Apple sold 46.6 million units in 2010, which was 87.2 percent growth from 2009. This is largely due to expansion into new countries and the ending of exclusivity deals, which has made the iPhone available through 185 communication service providers (CSPs) around the world.

I finally made the move to an iPhone and, after the first week, am loving it. This is just a macro of my new favorite stacked on top of a couple of "dead" smartphones gathering dust in a drawer ... a Blackberry Curve (which was so-so) and a Palm Treo (which was a terrific phone at the time). A couple of other smartphones I've gone through over the years missing from the pile include a Windows-version of a Palm Treo (which was the worst smartphone ever made) and a early Samsung touchscreen, which was a hot item when it came out 10 years ago.
