The data gathered by mobile ad shop Millennial Media also showed that iOS and Android devices tied for the total number of impressions last november. Each OS gathered exactly 38% of the month’s mobile impressions.

On the first tally, when devices are broken into categories based on the OS alone, Apple took the glory. But iPads and iPod touch devices were out of the picture only smartphones were taken into consideration, Android came out on top.

Android hardware went up above the vitality of operating system. In fact, 13 out of 30 top mobile devices as measured by Millenia were run by Android. Samsung and Motorola were the top manufacturers behind Apple. The original Droid stood-out hit among all the Android smartphones on the list.

However, the competitiveness of Apple didn’t end there. Apple’s iOS devices showed huge advantages in numbers. Both companies would have won in the mobile OS department. The only question left unanswered is who among the two mobile companies will be able to sustain their spots as top players in the tech industry.

See after the skip how this competition is presented in graphical form.

The Motorola Flipout reminds us of the Nokia Twist and a little of the Motorola Charm with its shape and how Android fits inside the tiny phone. And Motorola Flipout is definitely hitting the glass this month from AT&T.

Motorola announced last Tuesday that Motorola Flipout will be coming to the US via AT&T. The tiny, square phone swivels open to reveal a QWERTY keyboard, and it seems odd to see the Android on such a small screen. The Motorola Flipout is powered by Android 2.1, has enhanced MotoBlur interface, a 3 megapixel camera with Kodak Perfect Touch technology, WiFi, GPS, 3G and Motorola’s CrystalTalk. It is 2.63 x 2.63 x 0.67 in dimension and has a very usable keyboard despite its size.

The Motorola Flipout is slated to target the young, fashionable crowd with their interchangeable battery covers. It comes with Dark Sapphire and Saffron color covers, and will be available on October 17 for $79.99 following a two-year contract.
