Android Corners 80% of Smartphone Market
4 out of 5 new smartphones sold use Android compared to around 12.1% for Apple and 3.6% for Windows Phone (actually a massive gain). Blackberry is veritably dead in the water at 1.7%. Price seems to be the main reason driving growth, although Android is also used on "Phablets" (portmanteau of Phone and Tablet), Phones with a screen of 5-7 inches. Apple has no phone in this market. Apple just can't seem to measure up to the 5-7 inches that Android provides for users.Sales of Phablets went from 3% of the market a year ago to 23% last quarter
