US Smartphone Market Share shows Android Growth

Posted on July 13, 2012

New figures from Nielsen show that Android devices are still the most popular, with iOS coming in second.

Jim Dalrymple at the Loop points out that Apple is still the largest manufacturer of handsets by a long shot, with more than double market share when compared with second placed Samsung.

Our advice still remains the same, it is better to prove application and business concepts on iOS than it is to do so on Android; but Android remains an attractive platform for those looking to capture a large audience share.
