Android overtakes iPhone: more traffic in U.S.

It seemed all to come: Android has overtaken the iPhone in terms of data on smartphones in the U.S.. According to figures from AdMob, an agency that places advertising banners in applications and collects figures . AdMob gives a partial overview of the smartphone market because they do not operate on all platforms, but a comparison between Android and iPhone is doable. Android is now accounting for 46% of web traffic in the U.S.. The iPhone has dropped to 39%. But indicates this also that there are more Android then iPhone users? This conclusion can not easily be made.

The difference might have to do that with Android more and  more applications are offered for free (since there are still many countries that have not yet paid applications available, including Belgium). Thereby developers are using on the Android platform relatively more ads to earn money with their apps. Thereby more Android users  will be detected in the systems from AdMob. The Android-datatraffic is growing monthly by 32 percent, from 72 million searches in March 2009 to 2 billion in March 2010.

  1. That and AdMob is in the process of being bought by Google off course (if the FTC doesn’t block the deal). But go Android!
