Android gains market share at Apple's expense

Posted by A STAFF WRITER

Online tracking firm Quantacast confirms that Google's Android continues to rapidly gain mobile operating system market share at Apple's expense.

"The biggest player by far is Apple's iPhone OS (from now on to be known as iOS), but the biggest winner is clearly Google's Android," Quantacast explained in an official blog post.

"Android continues to capture more share, and if the recent launch of the HTC Incredible on Verizon and Sprint's HTC Evo 4G is anything to go by, Android will continue to rapidly gain share."

Indeed, during the past year, Android has taken market share from all parts of the market - but most noticeably so from Apple's OS.
