Source: StatCounter Global Stats - Mobile OS Market Share

Interestingly the UK is one of the last few markets where Blackberry holds any significant market share (Canada is another). Android is the big winner in the UK increasing its share by 10% to bump it up to second place behind market leader Apple.

 In the USA Apple has strengthened its position increasing market share slightly in the past year (8% increase), while Android has remained level. Blackberry continued its decline in the US and now holds less than 2% market share.
 Countries such as Germany, Spain and France have all increased their Android market share, however some of the biggest increases have happened in countries such as Brazil and China where Android’s market share has increased by 26% and 50% respectively. Russia has seen a sharp drop in Nokia’s market share with the Finnish handset maker losing 19 points over the past 12 months and Android picking up the majority of that loss (up 18 points).

Worldwide, Android is leading the charge making impressive gains in the last year (up 14%). Apple sits in second place with 26% of the market as Nokia slips down into third with 22%. Overall we are seeing Android’s market share increase in a large proportion of countries around the world, especially in developing markets.
