Android Accounts for 54% of Smartphone Sales in the US
Fiercemobilecontent.com is reporting that a mobile market research firm called the “NPD Group” has found that Android had increased it’s market share in the US during the 4th quarter of last year.
This is a 9 point increase from Q3 last year, widening the gap between Android devices and iOS powered units. This coupled with the fact that Android is now the top selling OS for smartphones across the world makes a strong case that Android is the OS to beat right now.
Of course, it can be argued that Android is leading due to the sheer number of devices that it is running on. The iPhone 4 was still the best selling smartphone in America when you look at handsets. It will be interesting to see some different numbers when the tablet wars begin to really crank up.
