Android Beats Out all the Others at 53.4 Percent

9 February, 2013 Android

According to comScore, Android is the leading operating system for smartphones in the market today. However, it was Apple that took the number one spot for manufacturers of smartphones. The figure for Android share should not be surprising at all, considering there are many carriers that support this operating system.

In addition, more people shifted from ordinary handsets to smartphones, possibly because of holiday sales and promos. The number of people who own smartphones increased as well and is now at 125.9 million, and it is still growing.

Apple trails at 36.3% on the number of people who bought smart phones from them. Other operating systems share a very small percentage of the smartphone market share, but this could easily shift, as long as less popular carriers improve their specs and designs. Furthermore, other carriers should be more open to selling different Android units as well.
