Apple iPhone drives Smartphone Growth in US says Nielsen
 
 

As reported this week Google is activating 500,000 Android devices each day. There are though more indicators that at least in the United States Android is not growing that fast anymore. Android has still the largest market share, but Apple shows new growth and Android is flat.

Nielsen (via BGR) issued a report today showing Android leading the US smartphone market with 38% followed by Apple with 27%. When looking at the last three month the iPhone stands out with a 7% growth, while android stayed flat. This means there is a trend in new smartphone buyers to choose Apple. This supports the predictions by some analysts, and actually I subscribe to this thinking, that the iPhone 5 release will accelerate that growth. Factors for the growth include the iPhone 5 availability on Verizon and the iCloud. Apple has managed to paint a very simple picture of what cloud services can do for consumers. Google has to still come up with a nice simple communication about all their services that are relevant for most users of Android phones.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
