Apple iPhone drives Smartphone Growth in US says Nielsen
 
 

iPhone shows biggest growth in recent months in US.

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.
