Fingers in Ear, Nah Nah, I Can’t Hear You

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.)
