Nielsen: 43 Percent of Recent Smart Phone Purchases are Android
If you or someone you know recently purchased a smart phone, the chances are pretty good that it is running. In fact, nearly half of all recent (US) smart phone acquisitions were Android. The Nielsen Company has issued its latest report which shows Android commanding a hefty 43 percent market share for smart phones purchased over the previous six month period. Apple comes in second at 26 percent with RIM at 20 percent, both standing rather still. In terms of new smart phone buyers, Android just keeps shooting skywards. Things look to shake up a bit now that Verizon will carry the iPhone, but it might just slow Android. Looking on the horizon, Android doesn’t seem like a train that is going to be derailed anytime soon.
