The One-Horse Race: 85% Of The 300M Smartphones Shipped In Q2 Were Android | TechCrunch
Now are they truly doomed this time? I think it's worth some discussion either way.
Clearly Apple are not "doomed" by these numbers. In fact, I doubt whether either Apple or their competitors see unit market share as the most important measure of their position. There's another type of market share that these companies tend to be much more interested in, that does not get reported because the analyst companies don't give the data away for free... And where Android vendors will certainly have less than 85%...
The more interesting question as a user is what this all means for me. So far, I would conclude not very much either way.
