iOS and Windows Phone marketshare on the rise

Remember we recently posted on iPhone 4S eating up Android's marketshare. Well, nielsen's latest report adds a bit more to this.

First, more American are intersted in buying smartphones now. Majority of 25-34 and 18-24 age groups now own a smartphone and 45% of smartphone users have subscribed to internet. Second, Windows Phone marketshare went up slightly and it at 1.4% now. Third, Android's marketshare takes a slight dip (down to 46.9%) and is almost same as iOS's (44.5%). The coming two quarters will be even more interesting as Windows Phone is gaining ground, thanks to Nokia's Lumia series and AT&T LTE windows phone devices. Finally, if you are wondering about RIM's share, it's below 5% now (at 4.5%)
