Android bites into Apple

With Smartphones holding a significant portion of the cellular phone marketshare, the race for being the number one smart phone operating system  is getting hotter by the day.

According to the  latest reports by Nielsen company,  Google’s Android operating system is giving Apple’s IOS a run for its money.
The latest survey shows that during the past 6 months, sale of Android’s operating system has zoomed past that of Apple’s IOS.

The study reveals that Android’s market share has risen from 17% to 27% from the first Quarter to the second while that of Apple’s IOS has declined from 27% t0 23% during the same time.

However, according to a different segment of the same study, Apple’s Iphone still remains to be the most desired phone by consumers.

But considering  the present trends,  it sure looks like  Android is all set to bite into a large piece of Apple’s marketshare!
