Android continues to lead the US market but loses some market share
Today the dominance of Android in the US market is indisputable. However, this leadership may be called into question in a few months, or so some experts like Charlie Wolf believe. According to the firm’s data IDC Android continues to maintain a privileged position but in the first quarter of 2011 its market share has decreased.
Charlie Wolf points out that the main reason for the decline of Android, and the rise of iOS is the arrival of the iPhone to the networks CDMA by Verizon. According to the analyst, this is the beginning of the decline of Android and the rise of other systems and manufacturers that threaten the hegemony of the green android.
Be that as it may, it is clear that Android can’t keep growing to infinity. If we see the data of IDC We note that in the first quarter of 2011 Android had almost half of the market share.
A really large figure that is difficult to maintain. Do not forget that the rest of manufacturers are moving tab also to position themselves and get part of the cake. At the moment in Spain, as Cosmos told us this morning, the percentage of Android smartphones was only 9% compared to 61% for Symbian.
