Android now has 75% of the world smartphone market.
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Android
While we weren't watching, Android took over the world.
Here's the new data from IDC that says Android's unit shipments doubled year-over-year while Apple is up 57%. Who's losing? Blackberry, Symbian, Linux, Microsoft, and everyone else.
Apple is a distant second with 14.9% of the global market.
Yes, that's right: Apple is now the Apple of the smartphone business.
And Google is #1 with Android, which didn't exist 4 years ago.
Now if they can just start bundling Chrome as the default browser, we'll be in da biz-niz!
Coming very soon. Definitely in the next year; maybe sooner.
There's not much more market share to squeeze/.
But it's a growing market, so I could see Android being 90% of the smartphone market within 3 years.
Especially since Amazon devices also count as Android devices.
