Even though mobile Safari for the iPhone can be argued to offer one of the best mobile web browsing experience on a handset, it clearly is dominating the market when it comes to mobile web consumption in North America. As they sit tight on top, Android is lurking in the shadows as the platform continues to pack some heat in challenging the market share accumulated by the iPhone. Online tracking firm Quantcast explained in its official blog post that Google's Android platform continues to close the gap between themselves and Apple's iOS when it comes to mobile web browsing. Quantcast explained, “The biggest player by far is Apple's iPhone OS, but the biggest winner is clearly Google's Android. Android continues to capture more share, and if the recent launch of the HTC Incredible on Verizon and Sprint's HTC EVO 4G is anything to go by, Android will continue to rapidly gain share.” Even though Android is taking a lot of the market share away from Apple's iOS, it can also be said that they're also the cause for the RIM's fall in market share as well. As we continue to see a handful of Android powered handsets hit the market, there is no denying the kind of impact that accompanies their strength in numbers.
