iPhone 4S Launch Pushes iOS Market Share by 20%

The marketing firm Nielsen recently released some results that reveal that since the launch of iPhone 4S back on October 2011, Apple has seen a massive growth in its iOS market share in the last quarter. However, Android did have a stronghold on the mobile market in that month with a striking 61.6% shares, but its shares dropped sharply to stand at 46.9% in the month December because of a rapid growth of iOS, the market share of which rose to 20%.

AppleInsider claims that the mobile platform of Cupertino-based Company peaked at 44.5% in market share that put both Android and iOS in a strong competition.

The Cupertino tech giant is trying hard through its popular iPhone handset to minimize the gap, but Android still manages to remain one of the most sought-after mobile platforms among the Americans. Yet, it seems that Apple is not of much concerned about its Waterloo-based rival.

Research in Motion known for introducing BlackBerry seems to be much affected as its progress continues to decline over the past few months or so. Its market share was decreased to stand as low as 4.5% in the month of December compared to its 7.7% share recorded three months earlier. The rest of the 5% are shared by the mobile platforms including Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 and Windows Mobile platforms, Nokia’s Symbian and HP’s webOS.
