Google's Android operating system is now at the top of the smart phone market.

A research firm says android-based phones topped smart phone sales in the last quarter of 2010.

Just under 33 million android phones were sold.

That's 7 times more than a year ago.

Android-based phones include those made by Motorola, Samsung and HTC.
