"Almost half-a-billion Android smartphones were shipped in total worldwide during 2012," noted Neil Mawston, executive director at Strategy Analytics. "Android is clearly the undisputed volume leader of the smartphone industry at the present time." 

A major contributor to the global success of Android, of course, is smart phones such as the Android-powered Samsung Galaxy S III. Released in May of last year, the Galaxy S III is currently available in upwards of 140 countries, and has consistently bested the Apple iPhone in plenty of markets. 

In related news, Google is widely believed to be working on an "X-Phone," which would be manufactured by its recently-acquired Motorola Mobility arm.
