Android Leaves Apple iOS In The Dust:
Google Android is now well ahead of Apple's iOS for iPhone in the race for market share in mobile operating systems, new data released Thursday showed.
Android's total U.S. share for June came in at 39%, compared to 28% for Apple, according to data compiled by market watcher Nielsen. RIM's BlackBerry OS was in third place with 20% of the market. Meanwhile, Microsoft's fledgling Windows Phone 7 operating system, along with the remnants of the Windows Mobile OS, picked up 9% of the total market.
Android's gains appeared mostly to come at the expense of RIM. Android's share was up 8.3%, compared to April, while RIM's share fell 13%. iOS's share was up 7.6% over the same period.
