Android is Global Smartphone OS Market Leader

Here is a quick breakdown based on the Global Average as of March, I couldn’t find April numbers.

Interesting that a smartphone can come out of nowhere and quickly overtake the market… that’s the power of Google I guess!

Android is at 38%, a +29.4% change.

RIM(BlackBerry) is at 24.5%, a +7.5% change.

iOS(Apple) is at 23%, a -16.5% change.

Windows Phones are at 2%, a -4% change.

These are the only Smartphone companies I follow, to be noted though Symbian or Nokia fell 14.7% as well, I do not foresee them sticking around for much longer.

Its a toss up as to which phone I purchase next, if Android keeps pumping out new powerhouse smartphones, why would i go for an iPhone5? It just wouldn’t make sense.
