by Reads (8,240)

The Motorola Droid launched a few days ago, and owners haven’t wasted time making use of the web browser. According to a web analysis company, over a third of web traffic from Android-based models is being done on the Droid.

Clicky is reporting that 3.1% of all mobile web surfing done today is being done on Motorola’s latest, which is more than a third of all all web access from Android-based phones in the U.S.

Not surprisingly, these figures are dwarfed by the Apple iPhone, which accounts for just over 50% of all phone traffic to web sites. Still, it’s enough to show that users of the Droid have quickly embraced the mobile Web in the 6 days this model has been available.

Both the iPhone and Google’s Android OS come with highly-capable web browsers, and emphasize surfing the Web while on the go on 3G mobile broadband networks.
