Android Growth Story Continues: US Smartphone Marketshare now 36%

Nielsen Survey conducted from Feb to March, 2011 ( 3 months ) show Android Leading while leaving its nearest  Competitor  Apple iOS  behind by 10%
Nielsen has released its latest US smartphone platform market share survey. This one covers the three-month period from February through April, 2011.As in prior surveys, Android was the big winner, with 36% of the market. So The " Android Story" Across US and The World shows no sign of abating

Apple's iPhone had 26% of the market. And Research in Motion's BlackBerry brought up the rear (among the major platforms), with 22%.

The good news for Android and Apple is that they have both gained a modest amount of share since the last three-month survey (which was done by Comscore and covered the November-February period).  Android's gains were far more rapid: Apple gained 1 point of share, while Android gained 3 points.  RIM's share, meanwhile, plummeted 6 points, from 29% to 23

Consumers with Android and Apple iOS smartphones exhibit data-intensive usage:
  • 74 percent of Android smartphone owners and 79 percent of iPhone owners report having downloaded apps in the past 30 days
  • 43 percent of Android owners and 46 percent of iPhone owners say they streamed online music or mobile radio in the past 30 days
  • 35 percent of Android smartphone consumers and 37 percent of iPhone owners report having watched video or mobile TV in the past 30 days

But while a higher proportion of iPhone owners engage in these kinds of activities, consumers with Android devices who engage in these activities consume more data on average.  An analysis of nearly 65,000 cellphone bills in the U.S. reveals that in the first quarter of 2011, Android smartphone owners consumed an average of 582 MB of data each month, compared to 492 MB for iPhone owners.
