In an interesting turn of events it looks like people are finally falling in love with the Android OS statistics say that the shipment of Android OS phones has surged a jaw dropping 886% which is a huge improvement over last year’s statistics the growth was the most noticeable in the US.

“In the United States, for example, we have seen the largest carrier, Verizon Wireless, heavily promoting high-profile Android devices, such as the Droid by Motorola and the Droid Incredible by HTC,” Canalys principal analyst Chris Jones said in a statement.

It looks like its only a matter of time before Android catches up to the iPhone’s lead. And once that happens maybe the future of Android can get even brighter with more developers and maybe introduction of cheaper phones.

“Expect to see smartphones accounting for a growing proportion of the wider mobile phone market as they become increasingly affordable to more customers,” Canalys senior analyst Pete Cunningham predicted in a statement. “By 2013, smartphones will grow to represent over 27 percent of shipments worldwide, with the proportion in some developed markets in Western Europe surpassing 60 percent and 48 percent in North America.”
