No wonder Apple is getting more aggressive in trying to protect its turf. The latest quarterly report provided by digital metrics company ComScore shows a sizable increase in Android’s mobile market share. While the Google Mobile OS still dwarfs compared to RIM and Apple in overall market share, its momentum is impressive. This trend is unlikely to slow down anytime soon, given the incredible number of new Android handsets being released this Spring.
Android increased 4.3% to capture 7.1% of the market, while RIM had a small growth spurt of 1.7% from the previous quarter, but enough to maintain its sizable lead over Apple, which came in flat at 25.1%.
At this point anybody’s gain is coming clearly at the expense of WinMo and Palm.
