Numbers Game Keeps Paying Off for Android

Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. Google’s (GOOG) Android operating system is now the top-selling OS among recent cellphone buyers in the States. Nielsen reports that among people who bought smartphones between January and August , 32 percent chose ones running Android, while 26 percent opted for BlackBerries and 25 percent for iPhones. (Notably, Nielsen’s figures include just a single full-month of iPhone 4 availability.)

Not much of a surprise, really, given the proliferation of Android devices at market these days and the number of carriers on which it’s available. Were the iPhone available from all four major wireless carriers and in a multitude of models, I imagine Nielsen’s numbers would be quite a bit different.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
