Nielsen report on Android and smartphone adoption   March 3, 2011

March 3, 2011

Here’s a quickie …

Today, Nielsen released stats for the the mobile phone market.  From November of 2010 to January of 2011, Android represents 29% of market share with Apple and Blackberry each at 27% .  However, without time constraint, total market share for Android compared to all smartphones is at 19%.  That’s fairly rapid adoption.

Blatant opionion:  I don’t think any iPhone users are jumping ship to go to Android.  Former Blackberry users and first-time smartphone buyers are snapping up Androids (probably due to cheap price … and the fact that you aren’t forced into a draconian contract with AT&T’s sub-par service).  Windows Mobile will always have its little sliver of the market.

Blatant opinion 2:  If you’re considering building an iPhone app, you need to consider an Android version as well.
