AdMob, which is an ad network used on over mobile 7,000 websites and over 2,500 applications, serves over 7 billion ad requests per month. Parsing through that data, they’ve noticed that Google’s Android operating system has grown by 25% compared to the previous month and as such has reached 5% global market share, making it bigger than Windows Mobile for the first time. Ever. Other interesting statistics: over half of the ad requests coming from the iPhone and iPod touch came from the USA, the top 5 handsets that ads are being served to around the world are the iPhone, iPod Touch, Samsung R450, Nokia N70 and Motorola RAZR V3. View the complete, 19 page PDF report, to satisfy your hunger for statistics, but take these numbers with a grain of salt. There are other ad networks out there, most notably Google AdSense, and the > 7,000 websites that AdMob caters to may have a heavy USA regional bias. I highly doubt there are more Android users out there than Windows Mobile users.
