It took a year or so, but Android is finally starting to grow by leaps and bounds. It is expected to launch on dozens of new devices this year and, so far, there are no signs of its adoption slowing down. An IDC study has shown (via Electronista) that Android is likely to overtake both the iPhone and BlackBerry OS by 2013.

IDC predicts that Android will have grown 100 times larger than it was in 2008 by 2013. There will be roughly 68 million Android phones by then, and that doesn't count all of the Android netbooks, tablets, and PMPs that will be out.

None of this should really come as a surprise. The staggering dominance of the iPhone OS was never going to be a permanent thing. While the iPhone will (no doubt) continue to be one of the industry leaders, other manufacturers are finally starting to catch up to Apple.
