Nielsen: Android Outsells iPhone Two to One

Android’s market share gains in the U.S. continue to mount with no sign of slackening.

Twice as many consumers purchased Android phones over iPhones in the past three months, according to new data from Nielsen. Some 56 percent of the consumers who purchased a smartphone in the past three months opted for an Android device, while 28 percent picked an iPhone.

Not much of a surprise, really. Since its launch in 2007, Android’s growth as a mobile platform has been astonishing. That said, there’s an important caveat to remember when considering these metrics. The iPhone is really just one phone available on two U.S. carriers; Android is hundreds of handsets available on all of them.
