Google’s Android Tops 50% of Smartphone Sales

Posted on: November 15, 2011


Google Inc. (GOOG)’s Android software ran on more than half of all smartphones sold in the third quarter as consumers snapped up handsets made by Samsung Electronics Co., said researcher Gartner Inc. (IT)

The Google system accounted for 52.5 percent of smartphone sales, more than doubling its share from a year earlier, Gartner said in an e-mailed report. Even as some consumers delayed purchases to wait for Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s latest iPhone and other models, smartphone sales by volume grew 42 percent, it said.
