Google's Android beats Apple's iPhone

But the battle for the ultimate smart phone continues.

FIGURES RELEASED on smart phones reveal that Google’s mobile operating system – Android has piped Apple’s iOS.

Google’s Android has continued to grow in the US and now has 27% of the market, behind Blackberry who has 33% of the market. Apple is four points below Google at 23%. Apple’s iOS peaked at the end of 2009 at 34%, while Android has seen a rise of over 300% this year. However the figures were compiled just a week after the iPhone 4 was released, according to The Guardian and we could see changes as iPhone 4 gains traction.

57% of Blackberry users have said they’re planning to abandon their Blackberry in the next quarter.

Last March, figures from Ireland suggest that over 250,000 iPhone’s had been sold, while Android had a 0.5% market share. No new figures are available.
