The smartphone market is the one that has grown the largest in the small amount of time that they have been available to us, and even though the likes of Microsoft and Nokia have been around for a while now in the mobile OS business, it is Apple and Google that have taken the spotlight.
It is no secret that the two have a huge rivalry when it comes to its mobile operating system as well as those who have smartphones that run on them. Apple has been in the smartphone market longer than Google, but the search engine giant is catching up quickly — this is because a huge number of cell phone makers opt to have their handsets run on this latest OS.
Do not think any less of Apple, especially when its OS success is due to one handset — the iPhone. Jim Dalrymple from Cnet News has been looking into how loyal iPhone and Android customers are and found an interesting report from nielsenwire. It shows that iPhone has triple the market share as Android.
The report also suggests that 80 percent of iPhone users said that their next handset would be a device that would run on the ever-popular iPhone OS. Whereas 70 percent of Android owners said that they would like to have another Android device.
How loyal are you?
