Android claims 75% marketshare in Q3/2012

Googles mobile OS Android is more successful than ever, as recent sales figures show: According to the International Data Corporation (IDC), 75% of all phones sold in Q3/2012 worldwide had Android as their operating systems. Although Nokia is putting great efforts into new products and heavily advertises their Windows Phone 8 devices, sales are still dramatically low at a 2% market share in the same period of time. Let’s see if the distribution of Windows 8 on PCs and tablets will boost sales of devices with the mobile operating system – to be honest, I hardly believe it.
