Nielson Survey: Android's Sales Beat iPhone's 2-to-1!

Granted, there are more models of Android phones than iPhones out there, and granted there have been some problems with Android customer satisfaction, and granted Android Market is infected with a whole lotta malware, but hoooooo-eeeeee does it feel good to know that Android is still kicking ass and taking names in the market-reach department these days.

According to new research by researchers who like to do a lot of research on things and such (Oh, Nielson), Android has pulled in twice as many new smartphone buyers as the iPhone. Over the past 3 months, 56% of those buying a new smartphone bought an Android device, while 28% bought an iPhone, 9% bought a Blackberry and 6% bought an "Other" (I hear they're great).

Yeah, yeah, the iPhone is just one phone by one manufacturer and Android has tons of models and yada yada....don't rain on my Android-themed parade! One more tiny asterisk: it could be that fewer people are buying the iPhone right now because they're holding off until the newest model to come out. La la la, I not listening!

  • I think this qoute bares consideration "If you want and Android you buy an Android" Lets not worry about the iPhone shall we?

  • I think sam has a point... lets see how sales are effected by the iPhone news.

  • He means early adopters curse :D Its just the idea that when you pic up a new device to early that you miss out on the read advancement that sucessive generations bring with it. Like when phones make the jump from 2G-3G or even 4G.

  • Whats the eairly adopters curse?

  • Agreed but one reason for the low iPhone sales might be because everyone is expecting them to announce something big like the iPhone 5 in the next couple weeks. So people might just have been holding back because they don't want to get the earily adopters curse.

    Though its still nice to see the better product selling faster!

  • Good to know that consumers at large are finally becoming savy enough to know a good product when they see it. Three chears for Andy!
