We all knew it was only a matter of time before Android claimed the throne of smartphone king, but we didn’t think it would happen this early. Seems that Android has finally topped the long time king of the smartphone OS Symbian off its throne, with smartphone manufacturers reporting a whopping 32.9 million smartphones sold with Android on board, compared to Symbian’s total sales of 31 million in the last quarter of 2010, according to research firm Canalys.

This bit of news puts additional pressure on Nokia, as they’ll definitely need to cover a lot of ground to retake that title from Google.
