Android shipments surpass iPhone shipments for first time

Thu, Aug 12, 2010


AppleInsider reports:

Shipments of smartphones running Google’s Android operating system outpaced iPhones for the first time during the second quarter of the year, as sales of all integrated mobile devices worldwide rose more than 50% to 61.6 million units.

The boost was enough to push Android past Apple’s iOS to become the third-most-popular mobile phone OS in the world during that same three-month period ended June, shipping on over 10.6 million devices to garner a 17.2% share of the smartphone market, according to Gartner. That represents a more than 850% rise for Android, which held just 1.8% market share during the year-ago quarter.
