iOS and Android Web Usage Growth

Serenity Caldwell for Macworld, regarding this report from Netmarketcircle:

The report, released Friday, tracks the usage share of both mobile operating systems from November 2009 to September 2010. Android market share grew a whopping eight times over that ten-month span, traveling from an initial 0.03 percent adoption to 0.24 percent by the end of September. Apple’s iOS continued a steady but upward climb, nearly tripling its 0.43 percent share to 1.18 percent.

The report also broke out the prevalence of individual iOS devices. The iPhone leads the pack with 0.75 percent, followed by the iPad at 0.30 percent, and the iPod at 0.12 percent. (And yes, that iPad number is larger than than the total Android usage share.)
