While it’s not always a source we hear from, the IDC (International Data Corporation) has released some jaw-dropping numbers from the third quarter of this year. The report claims that 75% of smartphones shipped in that quarter ran Android, a number that seems insane with Apple always in the news for the last few months. This isn’t the only huge number we’re hearing, as 136 million Android devices were shipped. That’s the first time Android has passed 100 million devices sold ever.
Apple’s iOS on the other hand, didn’t do so well. In Q3 they shipped only 14.9% of the market, with 26 million devices. Android shipped more devices in the past quarter than all of smartphone shipped in 2007. Android is continuing its world domination, and it doesn’t look like it will be slowing down anytime soon.
