android 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.
