Android Expanding Smartphone Lead Over iOS

The battle between Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android for dominance of the smartphone platform appears to be slipping ever so slightly in Android’s favor.

According to a study released by digital research firm comScore, Inc., Google Android now commands a majority, or 51 percent, of the smartphone market, up 3.7 percent from December. Apple’s share of the market also increased, though at a slower 1.1 percent rate. The company’s iOS platform claims 30.7 percent of the smartphone market.

No other smartphone platform’s market penetration platform grew over the three month period, even though the number of people in the US who own smartphones climbed by 9 percent, to more than 106 million people.
