The sales of Android phones in the UK have jumped up a staggering 350% during 2010 according to GfK Retail and Technology. The contract market as a whole only grew by 1 percent in the same period.

“The figures suggest an increasing number of consumers are now asking for Android handsets by name,” commented GfK analyst Megan Baldock. “Operating Systems are no longer simply a by-product but a key selling point in their own right.”

Android’s share of the UK mobile phone contract market has grown to 13.2% in Q2 2010, say GfK, despite the release of Apple’s iPhone 4 and the impending arrival of Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7.
