Android is on fire. With 300,000 phones sold every day and thousands of apps added each month, Google’s operating system clearly had one heck of a year. Of course, one cannot help but ask: who is responsible for such jaw-dropping numbers?

This week, will present a series of mini-profiles of people we believe most impact Android. These are the people who design the phones, code the software, and make decisions that influence the road that Android travels. Not all impact it in a positive way, but each person named represents important trends – past, present, and future.

One of these 10 people featured will be crowned Android Person of the Year. This person will be heralded as someone who has influenced the green bot and is likely to do so in 2011. When all 10 profiles have been posted, we’ll open up the voting to the public and select the Android Person of the Year. will profile the potential candidates throughout the week, but we’d like to hear who readers think should be included. Leave a comment saying who deserves recognition and then compare it to our list that will be compiled throughout the week. User comments may even lead to a last-second nomination.
