"While mobile video views on Vid.ly were dominated by Apple iOS devices early in the year, we've seen video viewing from Android devices growing significantly in the second half of 2011," said Jeff Malkin, President of Encoding.com.  "I believe this is a lagging trend of not only increased Android device sales throughout the world, but an improvement in devices to better support viewing video."
