iOS Gains Market Share, Android Loses for Q2 in U.S
By: Prashanth Shantharam  |  31, July 2012

Research from Strategy Analytics finds that Android’s market share during the Q2 period has declined on a y-o-y comparison, while iOS has ascended. For the quarter ending in June, Android’s share has dipped 61% at the same time last year to 56% this year. While iOS share has risen from 23% to 33% y-o-y.

Android handset shipments dropped from 15.3M to 13.M units. Allthingsd observed

“It’s worth noting that overall smartphone shipments in the U.S. fell 5 percent year on year to reach 23.8 million units, and Android’s market share decline this quarter was clearly a function of that. That said, iOS’s share increased 10 percent during the same period of contraction.”

    "Mobile is fundamentally reshaping how we as consumers spend from housing and healthcare to entertainment and travel, from food and drinks to communication and transportation. Mobile not only influences purchase behavior but also post purchase opinions. When the share button is literally a second away, consumers are willingly sharing more information than ever before. Mobile is thus helping close the nirvana gap for brands and advertisers who seek to connect advertising to actual transactions. The long-term battle is however for owning the context of the users. Having the best knowledge about the user to help drive the transaction is the simply the most valuable currency of commerce.” -- Chetan Sharma State of Global Mobile Industry Report1H, 2011
