Android platform gains more market share

The smartphone market in the US is slowly growing, and in the latest quarter, the Android platform actually gained market share, while all the other top 5 rivals conceded ground to Google’s open source operating system. For those who love trivia, Android crept up to 13% from 9%, while Apple dropped by one percentage point to 24.4%, with BlackBerry’s commanding lead faltering to 41.7%. Microsoft is the biggest loser this time round, lowering to 13.2% from 15.1%. Of course, what we’re even more interested in would be next quarter’s results, as that is when the industry takes into account the advent of iOS4 and a multitude of new Android devices that have recently hit the market.
