August 2011 Smart Phone Market Share
The following are the latest smart phone market share statistics from Nielsen. Android is well ahead of Apple, which isn’t unexpected since more companies have Android phones for sale than Apple. The WebOS market share is low due to a slow start, but I expect that they will have significant gains in the future due to the size and marketing potential of HP. Windows Phone 7 is widely believed to attain the #2 status (followed by iOS) by 2015 due to Microsoft’s partnership with Nokia and they have advantage of a vibrant developer community and great development tools (i.e. Visual Studio 2010).
Its interesting times ahead with smart phones. The competition from these major brands will only produce better products in the end for the consumer.
