Android’s Share of Smartphone Market Reaches New High

Google’s Android operating system can now be found in 85 percent of all smartphones shipped in the second quarter of 2014. This is a new high for the OS, according to a recent Strategy Analytics report of smartphone activity in that time period, during which Apple, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry lost market share. According to Strategy Analytics, 295.2 million smartphone shipped that quarter, roughly half the number shipped a year ago during the same time period. Samsung continued to lead the market with a 25 percent market share, having shipped 74.5 million units. A year ago, its share was roughly 33 percent. Apple is shipping more units than a year ago – having shipped 35.2 million units--, but despite this, its market share dropped from 13 to 12 percent. (Tech Crunch)(Strategy Analytics @ PR Newswire)
