Android’s Market Share Declining

by techsnarkblog

Signs point to Android’s net users are in decline. Horace Dediu’s write-up is US focused, but my guess is this will be a start of a global trend. Apple is succeeding with cheaper iPhones in the US. If the rumoured ‘cheap’ iPhone is rolled out globally, this trend will continue in emerging markets. 

Let’s face it, people buy Android either because they’re techies and what the freedom, or because they can’t justify spending more for Apple products. When the cost argument is removed from the picture globally, you’ll see Apple’s market share grow.

Of course, all this assumes that the iPhone 5C is a reality. I think it will be.
