Android Continues to Close In on Apple’s Smartphone Lead

Posted by: Mike In: OS

Depending on which report and how you read it, Android has already begun to overtake the iPhone as the leader in smartphone market share. That isn’t quite the case yet in the latest report from Nielsen, one of the most trusted sources of consumer ratings, though Google’s open source OS is closer than ever.

During November, Apple had a 28.6 percent share of the smartphone market in the United States, and that’s up a hair from its 27.9 percent share during the month of October. Android had a 25.8 percent share, up from the 22.7 percent share it had in October. BlackBerry OS fell from 27.4.
