Another big milestone for Google’s signature smartphone operating system – Android-based smartphone shipments reached 33.3 million worldwide in the fourth quarter of 2010, now making Android the world’s leading smartphone platform. In hitting the number one spot, Android has knocked out Nokia’s Symbian platform, which for years has been the leader in global smartphone shipments. Symbian now clocks in at second place with 31 million units shipped worldwide in 2010, according to the report released by research firm Canalys. Android’s sales rocketed up from just 4.7 million units shipped over the same period in 2009.
