So there's only one market where Android is losing to iOS, and that's Australia. Hmm.

See I told you'd there'd be a nice market share story for you. I hope this lifts your spirits.

Yeah, there are a lot of iOS users over here. Android only became more popular after HTC released the Desire and Desire HD and also when Samsung released the Galaxy S.
I'm actually surprised that the WP7 market share is larger than RIM right now.

Thats exaclty what i have been saying all the time.
Bada outsells WP7 !
And in france bada has 20.3 % percent market share (in france IOS HAS 20.8 %) last time i checked, leaving WP7 in the dust.

You say that Bada has a 20.3% market share in France, but this article clearly says it has 9.6%. Where do you get your numbers? Bada is just barely doing anything in France & Italy compared to WP7. WP7 beats Bada everywhere else & they are picking up steam compared to Bada. I really don't see Bada leaving anyone in the dust like you say. Android is leaving people in the dust! THAT is a more reasonable comment!

bada outsells both WinMo and WP7 combined together worldwide.
I can give you a link to that if you want (comes from economics analyst Tomi Ahonen, former employee of Nokia).

Actually, this article does not talk about market share.
It talks about OS-wise smarphone SALES share in a particular week in July 2011 and compares that with the same in July 2010.

Yes, but I think this situation is not for long.

WP7 is making a splash in Germany & from there it's going to spread. Bada is cool but WP7 will overtake them very shortly. Once that Mango update hits WP7 will essentially be like a reformed OS. I expect big things from WP7 later this year & in 2012 when the Nokia WP7 phone finally come out!
