Android now most popular smartphone OS in US

Posted on Friday, March 04 2011 @ 22:12:44 CET by


The latest Nielsen marketshare data reveals Android is now the most popular smartphone platform in the US. Google's mobile OS now commands 29 percent of the market, thereby beating RIM's BlackBerry and Apple's iOS platform, which each own around 27 percent of the market. Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 follows at a distance with 10 percent marketshare, while Palm OS has only 4 percent and Nokia's Symbian as little as 2 percent.
Bringing up the read was Windows Phone 7 at 10%, Palm OS at 4%, and Nokia's antiquated Symbian with 2%, thanks only to people who have legacy Nokia phones as there are no current Symbian smartphones on the market in the US.

This is a cataclysmic event, as it brings Android ahead of a platform that for years was the leading smartphone software. Blackberry's operating system became so ubiquitous with business that it seemed impossible to ever dethrone it from the top spot in overall market share. After all, companies would buy Blackberry phones in bulk, sometimes hundreds or even thousands at a time.
