For the moment, Samsung and Joss Whedon have something in common: they’re both on top of the world. After shipping more smartphones than any other company last quarter, a new report from Gartner says that four out of every ten Android smartphones comes from Samsung. Considering that Android is indisputably the top smartphone OS on the planet, that’s no fleeting statistic.

Gartner: Samsung makes up 40% of Android smartphone sales

They’re beating the pants off of their nearest competitors in the Android world, none of which managed to crack a 10% share. Altogether Android makes up a 56% share of the world’s smartphones, according to Gartner’s estimates. Smartphone sales in general grew enough for both Android and iOS to gain, with BlackBerry and the various flavors of Windows falling behind.

Samsung is likely to continue their dominance until the end of 2012 at least. They introduce more models in more markets than any other smartphone maker, and their flagship Galaxy S III will likely sell in the tens of millions of units if the previous two generations are any indication. Love them or hate them, it’s impossible to deny their success – except in the tablet market, where the iPad and inexpensive Android reader tablets are dominating just about everybody.
