One in ten phones sold on contract in the UK has the Android operating system

"Sales of Android phones have risen by more than 300% from the beginning of 2010, with one in 10 contract handsets sold in the UK now running Google's mobile operating system.
Android's share of the UK mobile contract market grew by 10.2 percentage points from the first quarter of 2010 to the second quarter, from 3% to 13.2%, new figures from retail watcher GfK show.
From the beginning of 2010, most of the UK's major mobile operators have started selling a number of hotly-anticipated mobile devices running Google's Linux-based software. The HTC Desire and HTC Legend are among other devices lauded by critics."
