Android Smartphone Market Share Declines in United States

We have spoken a lot recently about Android eating into iOS in a big way and then Strategy Analytics comes up with a new report showing the opposite picture, at least in the US.

According to the latest research published by Strategy Analytics’ Wireless Smartphone Strategies (WSS) service, smartphone shipments fell 5 percent annually to reach 24 million units in the United States during the second quarter of 2012. The Android operating system lost ground to Apple iOS as Android’s market share fell four points on an annual basis to 56 percent.
