This is a very exciting time for Android users in the United States. According to the latest statistics released by comScore, Android still sits as the top dog over all other competitors, but now that overall numbers tell a very interesting tale. Now, over half of all phones on US soil run Android. comScore’s report shows Android with a 50.1% claim — hey, by all rights, that spells majority in our books.This number has risen 3.2% from Android’s previous tally of 46.9% back in November of 2011. At that time, iOS could only account for 28.7%, which means Android had already doubled Apple’s numbers. As of February 2012, iOS had only gained 1.5% and rang in at 30.2%. As for the other competitors like RIM, Microsoft and Symbian, well — as you can see, their relevance level is next to non-existent over here.
I’m sure that the launches of phones like the Samsung Galaxy Note and Galaxy Nexus (among others) have helped to play a part in all of this. Regardless of the make or model, if it’s an Android device, it’s a member of our community and we’re damn proud to have it.
I have to wonder if there will ever be a day when it will solely be a battle between Android and iOS. It would obviously take a lot to make this situation possible, but it would be one heck of a dog fight. Don’t you agree?
