Mobile Browser Market Share

Mobile Safari’s lead over Android continues to grow in terms of mobile web browser market share — well over three times higher according to NetMarketshare’s numbers, 66 to 19 percent. Compare that with these new ComScore numbers:

Google Android continued to grow its share in the U.S. smartphone market, accounting for 51.6 percent of smartphone subscribers, while Apple captured 32.4 percent.

Not sure how to square the disparity here other than to assume that an awful lot of Android smartphones don’t really get used as smartphones.
