Android has grown at a staggering rate over the last three months. Canalys has just released their mobile market analysis for the last quarter, and the prognosis is very good for Google's OS. While the global smartphone market grew by 64% year-over-year this quarter, Android leapt up 886% y-o-y. Shipments of BlackBerry smartphones grew by only 41%, while Nokia also grew by 41%.

Apple grew 61%, for a global share of 13%. Nokia's share stands at 38%, while RIM is a distant second with 18%. Android devices hold a 7% share in the Chinese market, while they dominate the US market at 34%. The US smartphone market is still the largest, with a global share of some 23%. China represents 11% of the worldwide total, although that is certain to change in short order.
