That whole post was fantastic, it's what i have been saying.
The US market dominates the press, Androids catch up in 2010 in the US alone, gets all the press. I mentioned in another thread that in the last conference call Peter Oppenheimer said that they had outperformed the market - y-o-y. Where did that come from if android was catching up.
In the rest of the world, Apple doubled its market share. See this ( via Daring Fireball)http://www.clickz.com/clickz/stats/1...-growth-europe
3 Month Average of Top Smartphone Platforms in Europe. In July 2009 iPhone is 10.2%, by 2010 it is 19.2%, a point change
of 9 percentiles. Android grows by 5.6 percentile in the same period.
Not catching up there. ( Nokia is way ahead, and there is a lot of room for growth for iPhone and Android).
The Even More Rest of the World. I leave that as an exercise for the reader - however Apple is not on all carriers in all countries now, but is doing better than 2009, for sure. Look at China. So the worldwide Y-O-Y
The US is a special case because of the limitations of AT&T, particularly in the big markets like San Fran and New York. aT&T have 25% of all subscribers in the US and the iPhone is 28% of the smart phone market.
Verizon have 30% of the market. I dont expect ( obviously) that the iPhone grows to 58%, defectors from AT&T will reduce Apple's share of AT&T's share of the smartphone market ( which is disproportionate) , but Apple will grow in the US.
On all carriers I see it at 40% of the market in the US and trending there worldwide...
