Android Market Share

After seeing this Apple fans shouldn’t be angry. As iOS is only used on 4 phones, snatching 25% is an great achievement. Though after iPhone 4 was released the market share didn’t see a large increase, instead staying at about 25 to 26%, it looks like this might be the maximum number of people interested in buying an iPhone. As Android is using a strength-in-numbers tactic of being on many manufacturer’s handsets, it had no problem hitting it’s target! If Blackberry and Nokia don’t change they’ll probably be slowly forgotten by the smart-phone market.

看到這邊,蘋果迷先別動怒,因為使用 iOS 的手機僅有四部 iPhone ,能夠拿下 25% 己經很厲害,只是 iPhone4 推出後,市佔率也沒有大幅上升,仍然維持 25-26% 左右,看來 iPhone 能夠吸引的群眾也在這個範圍上下。至於 Android 在多個不同廠商的機海戰術下,也算達到預定目標了!BlackBerry 及 Nokia 的話,再不改變應該就慢慢被智慧型手機市場放棄吧!

  1. This is a real achievement for Android! Clearly many more phones to get there but still.

    This will in turn bring better apps to learn Chinese (and many other languages) on Android as the addressable market accelerates its growth.

    Thank you!

  2. Thanks, Nick. I just corrected the Pinyin.
    I’m also hoping that the increased sales of Android leads to more apps which I think we are seeing happening now. There is some real competition heating up between the mobile platforms.
