Mikey Campbell, reporting for AppleInsider:
According to Akamai, during the third quarter of 2012 there were
more Google Android Webkit browser users accessing content over
cellular data networks than those using Apple’s Safari. However,
by expanding the data to include all networks, not just those
designated as “cellular,” Safari was shown to have dominated the
mobile browser market with slightly more than a 60 percent share.
Using this same scope, Android users accounted for about 22 to 23
percent of the total.
So Android devices outsell iOS, but they’re used for cellular networking about evenly, and iOS devices are used for Wi-Fi so much more than Android that, in terms of overall network consumption, iOS devices consume almost triple what Android devices do. Still haven’t seen a reasonable theory explaining this from the “Android is winning/the Apple bubble is popping” camp.
