Chitika Insights yesterday released a study showing Android market share among U.S. phone carriers, with Verizon showing a big drop between March and August. Chitika’s conclusion:
Verizon’s share of iPhone traffic continues to increase, but it
seems that Verizon is gaining market share in Apple’s prominent
smartphone at the expense of its other, Android-running devices.
Let’s cut to David Ruddock’s post on this study at Android Police:
Verizon, who previously controlled over 50% of the market for
Android smartphones, has dropped to almost 40% over the last five
months. Who’s to blame? AT&T and small budget carriers, apparently
(US Cellular, MetroPCS, Virgin Mobile).
Apparently the Verizon iPhone is the phone that cannot be named. (Thanks to Derek Giromini.)
