Android Fortunes Decline In U.S.    [ 30-07-2012 19:12 ]

New figures from Strategy Analytics paint a less than healthy picture for Google's Android operating system Stateside. The figures show that year on year Android's declined both in terms of the number of units ships and also in its overall market hare. Fear not though Android fans as the Big G is still way out in front despite the losses.

Android saw its shipment of units slip from 15.3 million in Q2 last year to 13.4 million this year. Its overall marketshare was also down, sliding from a very convincing 60.6% last year to a still impressive 56.3% this year. Now some of this decine could be put down to the American smartphone market maturing a bit and saturation kicking. 'Could' is the key word here though as on the other side of the coin Apple enjoyed rather better fortunes.

For starters shipments of iOS devices were up from 5.9 million in Q2 2011 to 7.9 million in Q2 of this year. Overall marketshare also rose, climbing from 23.2% to 33.2% over the same time period. That's a year on year growth rate of 43% for those keeping count.

The last word from the figures goes to BlackBerry ... its marketshare having sunk from 10.5% to just 6.5%.
