Android Devices Top Wirefly’s Holiday Sales


While perhaps no single item ran away with the title of must-have gift, it is clear that the 2010 holiday shopping season was all about mobile. Whether we’re talking smartphones or tablets, limitless sales and enough advertising were diverted to making the devices top choice. And when we’re talking smartphones, we’re talking Android as well. If Wirefly’s sales data is any indication, Google’s OS did quite well.

Among the top 10 sellers from the online retailer, only one was not running on Android. Take a wild guess at which one device that might be (here is a hint: Steve Jobs has one). Even aging devices like the HTC EVO 4G and Droid Incredible managed to ring in the new year as some of the holiday season’s hottest items. CEO of Simplexity and Wirefly Andy Zeinfeld points out that the advancements in smartphone technology coupled with the gradually decreasing prices of such hardware played a large role in their success as top purchases.

  6. HTC EVO 4G still rules android it is a 4g device so it will be around for a while. All those other devices are 3g devices they will become obsolete

  7. Smartphones will be the new wave of technology for the next few years. Things are changing so fast that it is critical not to get stuck with dated technology. If you sign a 2 year contract now, you will be way behind the curve in 2 years time. Prepaid companies like Straight Talk are offering smartphones which, while not the leading edge, are not far behind. The smart move is to go prepaid. Even if you replace your phone evey year it will be cheaper than a contract phone and you will be more up to date with the technology.
