Android smartphones sold four for each iPhone

Far behind are the other rivals, such as BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows Phone, with shares not exceeding 5%

The IDC market research has found that in the second quarter were sold in total 154 million smartphones. Of these, 68.1% were terminal with Android operating system, while 16.9% were iPhone. Far behind are the other rivals, such as BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows Phone, with shares not exceeding 5%.
The number of new terminals with the Google platform amounts to 104.8 million in the second quarter of 2012. This is an increase of 106.5% over the comparative period of 2011, where sales were 50.8 million.
To see clearly the scope of the statistics must be taken into account only the number of Android sold nearly equal to the total number of smartphones that were placed on the market in the second quarter of 2011. The iPhone platform, IOS, is second in sales, but it is still far behind, with 26 million units, according to data from IDC .
IOS platform also grows, so does 27.5%, while BlackBerry and Symbian systems give much ground, 40.9% and 62.9% respectively.Between the two failed to obtain even a 10% share of the market this second quarter of 2012.
An exception to Android and iPhone OS, which dominate 85% of the market: Windows Phone. Has only a 3.5% share, but its growth was 115.3%, a figure that must be put in brackets, since the mobile operating system from Microsoft is still at an early stage of commercialization.
