As smartphone users begin to make their switch away from RIM's Blackberry smartphones, the number of Android smartphone users is on the rise. In only three months time Google's Android market share has gone up almost 3% to reach 51% of smartphone users in the United States.
Over half of the United State's smartphone market is currently using Android and that number seems to be growing fast. With companies like HTC and Samsung coming out with what can only be considered as pocket computers that you can make phone calls from, it is easy to see that the next year will show an even more significant growth.
Apple, of course is also doing their part to draw current Blackberry users away from RIM technology. In three months Apple iPhone presence has gone from 29.6% to 30.7%. Just above 1%. Is that success in Apple's eyes?
The new HTC One X, HTC One S, and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3 could be trouble for Apple. Apple is running in to a time where the iPhone fad may not be enough to propel customers to buy less advanced smartphones. As the months go on and new super phones come out we could see Apple either keep their current market share or worse, start to drop.
The new release of the iPhone 5 can help raise Apple in the United States but we will have to see how many new customers Apple can draw with HTC and Samsung crushing the Android market. Apple will have to show more of a change then they have in the past. Over four years now and Apple still has a 3.5 inch screen, and with rumors of a upgrade to 4 inches may not be enough.
Time will tell what the future holds for Android, but it certainly looks promising.
