The graph above shows Android’s growth over the past 18 months in UK.
Suffice to say that its growth is staggering. In 18 months it has
managed to gain about 40% market share (50% totally), mostly at Nokia
and Symbian’s expense, but also at the expense of Apple who is now
stagnating around 20% or so. RIM has also remained more or less stable
so far, but as I mentioned in the previous article, this will be
short-lived if Blackberries don’t become competitive with Android phones
and iPhones soon.
Android’s 50% market has also been achieved and surpassed in USA, and
also globally. One in 2 smartphones being sold today run Android. With
about double Apple’s market share, and some would say that will be
enough for Android, but I think it will continue to growth up to 70%
globally and at least 60%-65% in USA.
I guess Linus will get his "world domination" after all. :)
