I said it first. Then Buzz Out Loud (A CNET Podcast) said it. The Loop is saying it. Android’s 28% of all smartphone market share over the iPhone’s 21% was deemed a massive blow to Apple. Well duh (sans the Android victory part). Of course Android is going to have more market share - they’re selling a lot more phones than Apple. In all fairness, these numbers simply represent the volume of Android phones in the marketplace. How do you think Microsoft grew so big so quickly? They put their product everywhere. And look how that turned out. As an Android owner, I’ll say it’s way too early to determine what effect Android sales are having on the market, and whether this trend will last.
Just Like I Said, Android Market Share is No Big Deal
