LG has the biggest increase in Android market share since June
The data was derived from following the web traffic of hundreds of millions of Android flavored phones and tablets from September 1 to September 30, 2014. The numbers were compared with the figures generated from June 1st through June 30th.
The forked version of Android used on the Amazon Kindle Fire line has surprisingly given Amazon the third largest market share for Android devices, at 6.9%. That is up .1pp from June. Surely it is not from the Amazon Fire Phone, which has not been selling that well. Motorola (6.4%, down from 6.7%) and HTC (4.8%, down from 5.5%) round out the top five. Sadly, Sony's lack of distribution has kept the web impact of its models down. That results in the company finishing in 11th place, behind Barnes and Nobel. As of the end of September, Sony had .7% of the Android market, down from the .9% it had at the end of June.
