Android dominates smartphone market

Written by


56% in August, 39% this year
Google’s Android operating system is going from strength to strength and if the latest figures from Nielsen and IDC are to be believed, the OS is starting to dominate the smartphone market.

IDC reports that Android commands a healthy 39 percent market share in overall smartphone sales this year. However, Nielsen has some even more optimistic figures and says Android phones grabbed 56 percent of the market in August.

Of course, the positive trend comes at the expense of other smartphone players, mainly RIM and Nokia. The share of Blackberry and Symbian phones keeps going down, while Apple’s share appears to be stable and Windows Phone 7 is growing, albeit slowly.

IDC believes global smartphone shipments in 2011 will hit 472 million units, 55 percent more than last year’s 305 million.

Of course Android is spread out between numerous vendors and phone, whereas Apple takes its huge piece of the pie with one phone.

trajan2448 but thats the problem wit I OS, its on expensive devices, like me 4 example i cant afford now new iphone 4g or 3gs, but i can afford something like Samsung Galaxy 3

Not all people can afford Apple products,and mainstream is where the real money was and is in any kind of sales.

Completely false. Apple is the most profitable computer company in the WORLD, and they sell premium priced products almost exclusively. They have 75 BILLION in cash and no debt.
