Last year Android was at 46.9% and has taken a jump of 3.2% to reach 50.1% in February 2012. Apple on the other hand grew 1.5% to a total of 30.2%. Clearly this means more Android smartphones were sold in the past few months than the iPhone.
BlackBerry plunged again with 3.2% coming down to 13.4% market share in February 2012 from 16.4% last year. Windows phones also lost 1.3% and came down to a total of 3.9%, market share, though Microsoft and Nokia are yet to launch the Lumia 900 in the region.
If we look at the handset manufacturers, Samsung still leads with 25.6% followed by LG with 19.4%, Apple with 13.5%, Motorola with 12.8% and lastly HTC with 6.3%.
