Although IOS and the unlocked iPhone 4 are clearly the most popular device in the nation, that does not mean that every state is currently utilizing the IOS and iPhone more than other devices. It will be interesting to see how the map between Android and IOS changes moving into the future. The United States seems to be split pretty evenly between the two operating systems for mobile devices. Currently their shares at 38% while the Apple IOS marketshare is sitting at 33% as of June.
Other estimates have stated that the Android market share is at 40% while Apple is currently sitting at 26.6%. This is the largest difference that we’ve seen over the course of all of the estimates that have been released. It is currently clear that Android phones are more popular than I phones throughout the United States, with certain states being more apt to Android devices or IOS devices.
States such as Washington, on the whole, California, Texas, Florida and others tend to lean more toward Android. States such as Rhode Island, Montana, Louisiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, in Virginia all lean toward IOS and iPhone 4 unlocked devices and only a handful of states including Oregon and New York utilize the Blackberry device is most often, this is probably because these are centers for business, with less personal users per 100 people.
A number of other states are currently neutral including Alabama, Mississippi and Nevada. The states do not lean heavily in any direction, but it is clear that the country as a whole tends to lean toward Android devices, with IOS devices coming close behind. To say the least, it will be interesting to see how the map changes over time and whether or not the map continues to change as the mobile industry shapes and shifts itself as time moves on. Most analytical companies have continued to predict that Android will be taking over the market.
