iPhone Has Three Times the Market Share of Android (still)

Posted by Jeff Scott on June 7th, 2010

Coming way in third place, Android has 1/3 the market share of the iPhone in spite of the possibility that it outsold the iPhone last quarter. In spite of having a good quarter, Android failed to gain on Apple if these numbers from Neilsen are to be believed.

The numbers put Apple in second place (29%) behind BlackBerry maker Research In Motion, which has a 35 percent share. In third place is Microsoft Windows Mobile with 19 percent, followed by Google (9 percent), Palm (4 percent), Linux (3 percent), and Symbian (2 percent).

Apple and Google both moved up by 2 percent in the first quarter of 2010. In the same period, RIM and Microsoft both lost 2 percent market share.

We had heard that Android outsold the iPhone last quarter, but these number make me believe that isn't the case. While we don't know the total numbers, just percentages, math tells us that 2% of the 29% market share of iPhone is a greater number than 2% of the 9% market share Android has. That means that Android failed to gain any ground on the iPhone last quarter.

Math is hard. Let's go shopping for a new iPhone!

Apple Reports Q3 Results: Ships More Phones Than RIM

Posted by Jeff Scott on October 21st, 2008

Apple today reported their quarterly results -- you can see the full PR here. The important thing to see is that they shipped 6.9 million iPhones in 1 quarter! Wow, that's huge for a cell phone. This also means they shipped more phones with a single model and carrier than RIM did with multiple models and carriers for it's Blackberry devices.

Very impressive.
