According to AdMob, Android steals Nokia’s users
AdMob, one of the largest mobile ad networks, produces a monthly report based on the number of ad calls per device. There are a lot of nice things that can be learnt from monitoring mobile online ads statistics.
Of course, it’s not 100% accurate because some smartphones are not well adjusted to web browsing, and in some devices (such as BlackBerry) the popularity of AdMob is not that high like in the iPhone’s case, but the information can give some indication about mobile trends.
According to the August report, Android sales are growing at Nokia’s expense, while iPhone, as usual, continues to rule the mobile web browsing.
Interesting to see the differences between North America (quickly adopting new devices such as Palm Pre and HTC Dream and Magic – both running Android), Asia (who said anything about Nokia?), and Europe.

More interesting figures can be found in the report itself. It will be interesting to keep an eye on those monthly reports and see how the new Windows Mobile 6.5 based devices will affect the market trends.
