Share And Comment

According to data gathered by Nielsen for October 2010, Apple’s iOS has taken the top spot in the U.S. for smartphone market share. According to the report, Apple now has 27.9% of the market in the U.S. RIM’s Blackberry OS, which was formerly number 1, is still close in the race with 27.4%. The bigger news, however, is that both Apple and RIM gave up market share to Google’s Android OS. If you can remember back in Q3, RIM had 30% of the market, Apple had 28%, and Google had 19%. Now as the chart shows, Android has 22.7% of the market. This only fits into analysts estimates that Google’s Android OS will undoubtedly be #1 pretty soon. Cheers
