    Android widens its lead over Apple in the U.S., the ultimate prize is RIM's slot at number 1






    The latest numbers from metrics firm comScore show a pair of trends that remain in force in the U.S. smartphone market. Android is gainining ground on RIM's #1 on U.S. The Smart Phone Market. While moving farther away from the Apple iPhone for second place.

    Google's open source OS and Apple's iOS were the only two platforms to gain ground in Q4 of 2010

    With the release of the Verizon iPhone, it will be interesting to see what happens to these umbers in the upcoming months.

    It should change in favor of Apple. Thats a given. Take some that switch from Android, take some that leave RIM and MS for the iPhone, take first time smartphone users getting the iPhone and its in favor of Apple.

    What will be the wildcard is ppl switching from AT&T. If alot or enough switch from AT&T its gonna balance the market share gains Apple could get from the iPhone being on Verizon.

    In any case it will be interesting by the end of the year.

    Apple will reverse those trends coming to VZW, but VZW & AT&T are 2/3 the market, double what the IPhone reaches now. But in Q4 Android was outselling the IPhone nearly 3 to 1, so any reversal would seem to be temporary. Plus, as noted, the IPhone will see stiffer competition at AT&T from Android.

    Granted, people at VZW and AT&T delayed purchases waiting for the VZW IPhone. But consider that Android sales probably are still a much smaller percentage of upgrades than the IPhone, which is why market share has gone the way it has because like 3/4 of IPhone sales are upgrades.

    The competition is good for everyone. The sleeping giant is Nokia, and the CEO sent an internal memo the other day that was surprisingly blunt and forthcoming. Their platform is burning, and now speculation they may look outside to be competitive. Might Apple finally consider licensing IOS? WinMo could use Nokia badly. Of course, Nokie would not have to pay a licensing fee for Android...

    "Google" is a made up word that is made to sound similar to the real word googol which is the number 1 followed by a hundred zeros. So technically "Google" is a mispelling.

    Man,

    Now we have the death grip and the death hug. Or one can be very cynical and suggest the video was released to sell cases.......

    Thanks for the link,

    Here we go...lol

    Unless it can be duplicated with a piece of finger like the AT&T iPhone...this will look like the crazy Apple videos saying other companies have antenna problems too.

    With all the different Android phones being sold, as well as being on every carrier, we should be ahead of Apple. I'm not sure why this is such a big deal. If anything this article should read, "Google ahead of Apple by a mere %3.7, despite selling multiple phones on multiple carriers"

    When apple sells different versions of their phone (and they never will) then this will mean something.
