iSuppli: Android to Outstrip iPhone in 2012

More Android-based smartphones were sold in Q1 2010 than iPhones, on the North American market. A trend, which according to iSuppli, will continue so we’ll see more Android smartphones in 2012 than iPhone OS.

In 2012, iSuppli believes that Android will be on 75 million smartphones and Apple’s iOS on 62 million devices.

Obviously Android has an advantage here, since the operating system by Google is being used on smartphones from multiple manufacturers such as Motorola, HTC and Samsung while iOS is only to be found on Apple’s own phones and devices such as iPod Touch and iPad.

iSuppli also predicts that in 2014 Android’s share of the global market for smartphones will be 22.8% and iPhone OS be 15.3%. The global smartphone market has grown by 50% in Q2 this year compared to Q2 last year, according to IDC.

Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, says that 200,000 Android phones are being activated each day.

  1. This makes me conflicted, on the one hand the iPhone is an overhyped and over priced phone that other phones had the same features of, on the other hand Google couldn’t code its way out of a hello world program and uses linux. I guess I’ll stay neutral on this one and let the two fight it out.

  2. I think I’m gonna go with Android.. Open source is great technology and I don’t want to stick with a whole new technology where I can see an apple logo all over the things inside my room.

  3. I really like the android opposed to apple’s stuff. I think that Google’s products are superior in a lot of ways… apple is all flash and stuff, ya know?

    Open source for the epic win!

  4. that was an early prediction . wait and see how android devices fare …. Not every google venture turn out to be a success …

  5. I am partial to Android. I like the look, the feel, and the general user experience. For some reason I am a little put off by iPhone. I am looking at Google to continue to do big things!

  6. Google Android Rocks as Its Google product and this operating system have excellent features too Great post. 🙂

  7. i am going to start a Android section in my blog . seems it will be the next big thing in the coming years
