According to new figures from analyst Strategy Analytics. The analyst estimates that 152.1 million Android smartphones were shipped globally in the quarter, nearly double the amount shipped in the year ago quarter, around 80.6 million, bringing Android's global smartphone market share from 51% at the end of 2011 to 70% at the end of 2012.
iOS saw modest gains, with 47.8 million units shipped up from 37.0, but failed to top out at even one third of Android's marketshare. Every other platform barely registered. Symbian, Windows Phone, BlackBerry and Bada struggled to hit 7.9 percent marketshare.
The global smartphone shipments for the full year 2012 reached a record 700.1 million units.
