Google’s Smartphone Market Share Growing: Bad News for Palm

Recent information released by ComScore has revealed some promising information for Google’s Android platform, apparently in the three months which ended in January 2010 Google’s smartphone market share grew pretty significantly.

Prior to this most recent information Google held a smartphone market share of 2.8%, however as of January 2010 their market share was at 7.1%, this seems to be partly at Palm’s expense as during the same period their market share dropped from 7.8% to 5.7%.

To be honest the last 9 months or so have been great for Google Android and with handsets such as the Motorola Droid and Google Nexus One still doing very well things look to get better and better, I feel that Palm really need to try and release perhaps 10 webOS-based handsets per year to stand any chance of increasing their market share.
