PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Google is activating half a million Android devices a day, a big jump in just the last couple months, a sign of growing momentum for the platform. While SymbianOS appears to be hanging on in the mobile arena, trends indicate that the iOS share is slipping slightly, losing ground to Android. The pure marketshare numbers don't tell the whole story, since the entire segment is growing rapidly, so even platforms that are in declining share might be adding new users. But if the upsurge in Android activations continues, Android may overtake iOS in a few months and move into second place behind SymbianOS. Blackberry is in a slow decline, while WP7 does not have enough market share to appear in the statistics.

Interestingly, MS doesn't even have enough market share to show up on the US specific version:

HP's WebOS, however, does. Just goes to show how little there is of WP7.

Depends if they're in "unknown" or "others"... Statcounter apparently haven't bothered to integrate a tool to detect WP7 phones.

WP7 would probably show up as WinCE instead of "other".
However, it's hard to find anyone with high WinCE numbers.
