Half of all new smartphones are Android-powered, iOS trails with just 15-percent

According to a third quarter analysis performed by Gartner, Google's Android OS is actually gaining more traction. Out of 115 million smartphones shipped across the world, Android was in over 60 million of them, this accounts to 52.2-percent of all smartphones everywhere.

Android now outnumbers iPhone OS on devices sold by an amazing three-to-one ratio. In Q3 of 2011 alone, 440.5 million devices were sold, with total mobile sales increasing by 5.4-percent since this time last year. Nokia is still king of the hill by manufacturing nearly 25-percent of all mobile devices.

 

Samsung have become the top smartphone manufacturer with over 24 million handsets being sold in that quarter. As much as Apple gets its fair share (and in my opinion, way more news than other companies), they have such a small grasp of the market. Samsung and Nokia just completely destroy Apple in terms of Q311 units shipped, marketshare, and even in Q310 saw the same dominance by Nokia and Samsung.
