Android Catching up to iOS in Mobile Browser Marketshare

According to a report by Quantcast, Android’s mobile web consumption is growing rapidly, and has taken a significant chunk out of Apple’s overall share. Last year, iOS devices accounted for nearly 67% of the total market, and Android accounted for just 8%. This month, iOS dropped to 56%, and Android climbed to 25%. Of course, Android phones are available on most major networks, so this shouldn’t come as a surprise. Keep in mind, this doesn’t mean that Apple users are using the web less than before, only that Android has had a relative increase. Also note that these numbers do not include the iPad.

If the iPhone does come to Verizon, you can expect iOS’s share to climb back up dramatically.
