The past quarter has been a very good one for Android and IDC now estimates that Google’s mobile platform accounted for nearly 80% of all smartphones shipped in Q2 2013.
But there’s one place where iOS has been stubbornly resilient and has kept Android largely at bay: In the United States.
ComScore’s previous such survey
showed that Android had 52.4% of about 141 million users. This amounts
to 73.88 million Android devices in use. It also means that Android
usage in the US went down for the first time.
