According to IDC data, Android sales have more than double in the last year and accounted for 68% of new phone sales in the second quarter! iOS (iPhone) market share should pick up with the release of the iPhone 5 expected in September and SellYourCell.com will likely be buying a LOT of old iPhones as customers trade up to the iPhone 5.
Over 100 million Android phones were sold during Q2 versus 26 million iPhones. The Android and iOS operating systems accounted for 85% of all phones sold during Q2.
Blackberry, coming in third saw its market share drop by over half from 11.5% in Q2 2011 to 4.8% in Q2 2012. Windows phone market share picked up a tiny bit but their market share still is tiny.
Android and iOS appear to have a lock on the market but the only certainty in the cell phone market is…..uncertainty.
