And The Smartphone Winner Is….

November 3, 2011


According to data recently released by Nielsen, the Android OS is moving full steam ahead and establishing itself as the dominant smartphone operating system.  Google’s mobile operating system now accounts for a full 43% of U.S. smartphones.  This is  up from the 39% that was reported in July.  Apple’s iOS is holding firm at a 28% share, with RIM down to 18%.  RIM’s numbers shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone given the latest missteps and outages it faced several weeks ago.

The numbers by Nielsen aren’t necessarily telling the whole story.  Apple still remains the king of hardware.  Apple’s iPhones are used by almost 28% of all smartphone users, making them the top manufacturer.  The recent release of the iPhone 4S surely helped to bolster these numbers as the new devices flew off shelves and wireless carriers selling out in just days of its release.
