Android Market Share is 39% in US, but Apple is largest Smartphone Manufacturer
 
 

Today Nielsen published a new report on the US Smartphone market. According to June data from Nielsen, Google’s Android now claims the largest share of the U.S. consumer smartphone market with 39%. Apple’s iOS is in second place with 28%, while RIM Blackberry is down to 20%. Both Android and Apple added one percent point compared to the previous Nielsen report in June.

Because Apple is the only company manufacturing smartphones with the iOS operating system, it is the top smartphone manufacturer in the United States. Right now Apple is also in the lead world-wide. This can still change when Samsung releases their earnings tomorrow.

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.
