It’s no secret that Google’s little green robot holds the majority of the US smartphone market, but how is it doing internationally? CNET UK is now reporting that Android makes up 50.1% of the UK smartphone market, effectively making it the dominant OS across the deep blue. This is about a 5% increase over last year, where Android held about 44.6% of the market.
Another interesting statistic comes from the CNET report, and it’s that Samsung and HTC make up 86% of all Android handsets in the UK. That’s right, about 46% of smartphone owners in the UK own a handset made by either Samsung or HTC that runs Android. Impressive numbers, and it doesn’t look like Android will be slowing its pace anytime soon.
