Simultaneous launch of the 2 Droid phones by Verizon on same day wasn’t really a coincidence, but done intentionally to attract different type of audiences. This action of Verizon however, led to a bit of confusion as to which one is better than other. In our earlier post we had carried out a head-head comparison of the the two Droids in the Arena. Motorola Droid was also compared with HTC HD2, and later weighed against another contemporary iPhone 3GS.

It looks like, atleast so far, Verizon has a winner in its hands! According to the data collected on November 12th, only a week after of its launch, Verizon’s Motorola Droid has managed to grab 2.84% of all mobile Internet traffic in the United States. In quantum it may not appear that significant, but taking into consideration the fact that the Android OS only accounts for around 8% of the
US Internet traffic, is a clear indicator that Motorola Droid has already snapped a quarter of all Android mobile Internet traffic in the United States. This itself is a big achievement for the newly born Android 2.0-powered Droid phone.

The table shown below shows how Droid stands against iPhone, Android in general and other mobile platforms in terms of web browsing market share in US for November 11, 12 and 13.

Motorola Droid Grabs 25% of Android US Internet Traffic at Launch

Motorola Droid or HTC Droid Eris, whoever captures the Android market of US, the beneficiary in any case will be Verizon. Launching both Droids on the same day was really a smart move by the US-based smart phone carrier.
