Are you sure about this?  iPhone is about 42% of the smart phone market in the US, but iOS also includes iPod Touch and iPad.  When those are included, I would guess that iOS has a higher market share than Android.  

The report does include tablets too.  where it compares phone sales to tablet sales.

Yeah, but I think it's pretty clear that mobile is a big part of their business now.

They actually don't there IM division (smart phones, cell tower equipment and computers) makes almost 90% of there money, thats according to there latest quarterly.  If they lost sales on there Galaxy line it would hurt horribly for them.

Something doesn't add up here. If iOS and Android made 50% of all module traffic, and Windows and BB didn't account for much, then which platform accounted for a staggering 50% ?

 

That part of the article is referring to ALL mobile traffic.  Of all mobile traffic, roughly 50% of it was used for online shopping.  Of that 50%, 80% was using an iOS device to shop.
