2010 is going to be a very big year for Android. Back in September, when ChangeWave released their last study, only 6% of mobile customers were looking to buy an Android device within the next 90 days. Now, ChangeWave has another study out, and it's shown a staggering jump in Android's popularity.
In December of 2009, 4,068 consumers were surveyed about their immediate smartphone plans. 21% of them intended to buy an Android smartphone within the next 90 days. That's a 15% boost, and it came at the expense of Apple, Microsoft, and Palm. Windows Mobile, iPhone OS X, and Palm WebOS all dropped in popularity during the same time period.

The amount of actual customers using Android has also jumped in three months, from 1% to 4%. While Google's little OS-that-could still has a lot of ground to cover, it's clearly meeting with an enormous amount of early success. HTC and Motorola have both seen a substantial uptick in planned buying as a result of their Android lines.
