It didn't take long for Motorola's Droid to make a big splash in the browsing statistics, according to mobile ad firm AdMob.

In AdMob's latest metric report (blog, statement, PDF), Android phones had 20 percent of smartphone traffic, up 7 percent from six months before. And Motorola's Droid and CLIQ have had a quick impact on the browsing share.

AdMob, which has been acquired by Google, looked at the devices that comprise the market share of the mobile players. For instance, here's a look at the Android breakdown:

Simply put, Motorola's new handsets really moved the needle within Android market share stats.

RIM's breakdown was also interesting. The big takeaway: The Curve rules the roost and the Storm is a so-so performer. Browsing is infinitely better on the Storm than Curve so it's a little surprising it doesn't have more share.

Overall, not a lot has changed in the smartphone standings. Apple's iPhone platform is dominant. However, Android and its army of devices are likely to make a push in the months to come.
