iPhone Gets Press, Android Gets Market Share

8 07 2010

No knock on Apple here.  They have some run-away best sellers going:

The interesting news is that while all this is going on,  comScore’s latest numbers on smartphone platform market share show Apple iOS declining slightly while Google’s Android market share grew 4 percentage points.

Important caveats:

  • The time period was the three months ending in May
  • This does not include iPhone 4 sales
  • It also does not include iPad.  Not a smartphone

The key thing to note that while all the major players are growing in absolute terms, Apple pre-iPhone 4 was not gaining market share.  It will be interesting to see what happens now that the iPhone 4 has shipped.
