Android Up 5.2%: And The Beat Goes On...

"It's the start of a new month which means it's time for more surveys, reports, and findings to start rolling in. Among the first this month comes the comScore MobiLens report which looks at the US mobile scene."

Android continues to dominate the U.S. phone market at the expense of RIM, Microsoft, and Palm. There really isn't much to day other than, "OH YEAH!!!" It kind of makes you wonder how long the other "major players" will continue to hold on.

Android Market Share Continues to Grow

"Canalys reports that Android now has a 49 percent market share, continuing the trend of Android being the leading smartphone operating system in the U.S. That's an increase from the 43.6 percent share reported in Q3 2010. Canalys originally attributed the popularity to the HTC EVO, Droid X, and other high-end Android devices that ate away at RIM's stronghold in the smartphone wars. This time around, much of the credit goes to a prevalence of 4G devices."

It seems that 4G is a hit in the U.S., which is translating into higher market share for Android devices sporting the newer technology. The only question that remains is whether a 4G iPhone will eat into that market share or if being the first to market will help Android to stay on top.

Android Asks To Borrow Symbian's Market Share, Doesn't Bother Returning It

"We like, ok, love poking fun at analysts' long term forecasts given the volatility of the smartphone market. Nobody, neither Gartner nor IDC, predicted the meteoric rise of Android and iOS, thus making their four-year projections (measured to a decimal point) laughable, to say the least. Shorten that timeline to the end of the year, however, and the accuracy of these forecasts tends to increase dramatically."

If this guestimate is even close to correct this if really not good news for those Symbian people. Everyone pretty much knew that Symbian was doomed but by the end of next year? eep! Even RIM is on the down hill slide but it looks as if Symbian just drove off the cliff. Though it is reassuring to know that Android is finally on the cusp of achieving world domination. *insert maniacal laughter here* I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome all of the former Symbian users to the Android Thoughts community. ;)

Android To Blackberry: "All Your Market Share Are Belong To Us"

Posted by Jason Lee in "Android News" @ 02:00 PM

"Android's market share has continued its rise in the third quarter of the year and Apple's iOS and RIM are struggling to keep up. According to NPD's Mobile Phone Track, Android was installed on 44 percent of all smartphones sold during the third quarter, up from 33 percent in the second quarter, while iOS saw a slight bump from 22 to 23 percent and RIM dropped into third place at 22 percent."

The smartphone market in general is growing fast but no where near as fast as Android. Someone's gotta take the hit. Unfortunately for RIM, Google's rapid ascension to the top is coming mostly at their expense. As Android's market share continues to climb Blackberry's continues it's downward spiral. Are any of you out there converts from the Blackberry OS? What made you jump ship to Android?
