    The iPhone is well-represented in the Northeast and Midwest, according to statistics released by Jumptap, a mobile ad network. The iPhone is also strong in Montana and Louisiana.

    Android is very strong in the West, plus the rust belt of Ohio, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. BlackBerry remains strong around Washington, DC, with RIM being the provider of choice for government bureaucrats -- at least for now. Corporate-centric New York is also a stronghold for BlackBerry.

    There doesn't seem to be any obvious correlation between iPhone or Android use and statistics like per capita income or population density. TechCrunch has the complete study.


    The chart above isn't particularly informative -- it doesn't give precise market share breakdowns -- but it is an interesting look at which states are over representing one brand or the other.​

    I wonder why they didn't include Alaska or Hawaii.

    I live in California an Android state. The only reason New York is a stronghold for BlackBerry is because of the 3 Kardashian sisters having BlackBerrys lol

    I live in Texas, an Android state, although I see way more IPhone users than Android.

    Neutral state here. Most of my co-workers and friends here in Atlanta have Androids. It's probably the rural trailer park crowd balancing us out with iPhones :)

    Not that there's anything wrong with trailer parks!

    I'm surprised Maine is an iPhone state. AT&T has abysmal coverage north of Lewiston/Auburn, and most Verizon smart phone owners seem to have Blackberry.

    In fact, I don't think I've ever seen a person in my area with an iPhone 4.

    In regard to Android vs. Apple I wonder if it could have had somethingn to do with coverage and the fact, Applie for a long time was only sold by AT&T.

    I live in UT, in most areas outside of SLC, AT&T is not a real option. Where I live AT&T is EDGE and coverage is terrible. If someone wants a smart phone they need Verizon; thus Android or BB.

    Same for other western states.

    As for NY. I have been to NYC and it appears everyone has a BB stuck in their ear.dancedroid

    I live in LA(Louisiana) and they are die hard apple fans.
    Although I've converted a couple of poor souls.

    As much as I hate to say it...South Carolina being claimed as a Blackberry state is pretty spot on. People are still under the impression that it's the only "professional" collection of smartphones for businesses around here, especially in areas outside of the three "major" cities of Columbia, Charleston and Greenville. (read- areas outside of Verizon's LTE coverage).

    Given the surge in Android market share, I'm surprised nearly all 50 states AREN'T Android.

    And I'll add...I have an IPad on AT&T and the coverage is so spotty on my normal travels the 3G service is almost useless. VZW is really the only option for business travelers (although the real power biz travelers usually have VZW and at least one other phone with Sprint or AT&T).
