Apple's iPhone big in the States, Android dominating everywhere else
Data from researchers from Kantar analyzing the 12-week period ending November 25 showed the iPhone surge to grab a record 53% share of the U.S. market and up from 37% last year.
Android on the other hand has gone down in share to 42% from its commanding 53% share in the same period last year.
Big news is that RIM has lost a huge chunk of its market share and from 7%, now only holds 1.4% of the market.
On the other side of the pond it’s a whole different story. Europe’s biggest markets like Germany and France are dominated by Android. Spain is one glaring example of a country that just does not like the iPhone. There, Apple’s smartphone share dropped to a bottom low of 4.4% while Android took a whopping 84.1% of the market.
