The iPhone appeared in the number 1 spot, however the Samsung Nexus S came in second place. One thing we found interesting was that the Motorola Droid was the number 4 ranked phone which lends credence to our story that suggests that Android OEM’s may need to slow down just a bit. Although the Nexus S was released a year after the Motorola Droid it’s still 7 months old already. The newest Android device to appear in the list is the HTC Thunderbolt and it ranked in the number 17 spot.

It’s also worthy to note that the LG Optimus V and the Huawei Ascend are both “prepaid” Android devices. The Huawei Ascend is on Cricket Wireless while the LG Optimus V is on Virgin Mobile. Both prepaid devices ranked in the top 10 in spots number 6 and 7 respectively. All of the major prepaid carriers offer unlimited data on par with Sprint’s “truly unlimited” sans the 4G.
