IPhone is Slowly but Steadily Gaining Grounds on Android


Google is currently enjoying a nice lead in the smartphone market as the Android platform currently powers over half the world’s smartphone. However, that number is expected to decrease in the future as Apple is pushing to increase the presence iPhones by enabling more carriers on their device.










Google is currently enjoying a nice lead in the smartphone market as the Android platform currently powers over half the world’s smartphone. However, that number is expected to decrease in the future as Apple is pushing to increase the presence iPhones by enabling more carriers on their device.
The IDC projects that Android based smartphone will hit a wall at around 62% market share, and from there it will experience a decline. Android tablet market share has already started to trail off as it’s currently holding on to about 36% compared to last year’s 38%. According to the IDC, Apple’s iPad will enjoy a large cushion as it will own about 62% of the tablet market share.
In addition to possibly adding major carriers such as T-Mobile to the mix of iPhone enabled carriers, prepaid services from Leap Wireless, Cricket, and Virgin Mobile has announced that they will add the iPhone to their lineups of phones.
Apple is slowly, but steadily gaining grounds on Google, and perhaps Android’s rapid growth is to blame for their predicted downfall. Many apps on the Android platform are not as refined as their iOS counterpart. Furthering Android’s troubles is the problem of fragmentation, which causes incompatibility of apps among the vast selection of Android devices.
Google is scheduled to reveal their latest Android version soon, Jelly Bean, but even a newer and smoother platform may not help Google’s cause—evident through ICS failure to become OS of choice for Android devices. Only about 7% of all Android devices currently run on ICS, and unless Google unite their OEMs and demand Jelly Bean enabled devices, we won’t see Jelly Bean make a huge impact on the Android scene.
Although Android currently leads the pack in the amount of Android powered smartphones, it currently has too many internal issues which may cause it to lose out to the iPhone, and maybe even Windows Phone in the future.

Yep. Every article remotely supporting Apple is biased.

Every article bashing apple is not biased.

Re: IPhone is Slowly but Steadily Gaining Grounds on Android

i dont ever feel that Iphone really competes with android in marketing, i'm not talking about steve's personal thoughts... iphone have its own class of customers which doesnt care abt how good or bad is new the iphone.. they will spends days in line to buy new one... they are 'apple fanbois'.

same is the case with samsung and apple, if you look at the commercials, samsung is the only who always mocks apple's products, and they get no replies.

apple is a brand name everyone else wants to be.

P.S.: i'm not an apple fan myself.

Apple or Android, don't care which one has a better market share as long as both offers a great User Experience.

Re: IPhone is Slowly but Steadily Gaining Grounds on Android

I have been a iphone user for a long time and wished if they came out with the affordable version but one reason why Andriod is selling well could be due to the cheaper phones.Was checking the world wide web and came across a report that Apple generated revenue of 150B $ selling iphones only since they launched it.So beating Apple would be a hard time.
