Android Market Share – Business Insider

November 3, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Android’s dominance of the global smartphone is getting out of hand.

New data from IDC says Android owned 75 percent of the smartphone market in the third quarter of 2012. Apple was a distant second with 14.9 percent of the market.

Android’s unit shipments nearly doubled on a year over year basis, growing 91 percent. Apple was up 57 percent. Android is taking share from BlackBerry, Symbian, Linux, and others.

Thus far, Android’s incredible rise has had little impact on Apple’s financial performance. It’s still printing money. It’s the world’s most valuable company.

But, Tim Cook has to be worried that his company has become a niche player in the biggest global computing market.
