    USA:4Q2011: Top 5 smartphones brands and All OS market share.








    iOs from Apple close the gap to Android on the recent before quarter 4Q 2011 after the launch of the iPhone 4S. and clear takes the pie from Blackberry in a 7% to reach a 37% and Android 1,9% and 3,5% from the others OS to get a 51,7 %, when comparing All smartphone consumers vs Recent smartphones acquirers (Oct-Dec 2011)


    According to the latest research from Nielsen, the high-profile launch of Apple’s iPhone 4S in the Fall had an enormous impact on the proportion of smartphone owners who chose an Apple iPhone. Among recent acquirers, meaning those who said they got a new device within the past three months, 44.5 percent of those surveyed in December said they chose an iPhone, compared to just 25.1 percent in October. Furthermore, 57 percent of new iPhone owners surveyed in December said they got an iPhone 4S.

    Android continues to hold the lead among all smartphone users, with 46.3 percent of all smartphone owners surveyed in Q42011 reporting they have an Android-based mobile phone.

    As of Q42011, 46 percent of US mobile consumers had smartphones, and that figure is growing quickly. In fact, 60 percent of those who said they got a new device within the last three months chose a smartphone over a feature phone.

    However Apple is smartphone number one as a brand with a 29%, HTC 21%, BB 17%, Samsung 11% and Motorola 11% from August to Dec 2011 in the USA.

    P.S webOS down from 1,5% to 0,5%

    How is this measured? I can't imagine BB being better than Samsung, and also not Samsung being behind HTC. But well, I live in Europe - it might be different in the US.

    Well, my interpretation is that webOS' total market share is 1,5% (all smartphone users) and 0,5% of all smartphone buyers in the last three months have bought a webOS smartphone.
    Preł (iPhone 4), TouchPad 32 GB (PlayBook 16 GB)

    Never trust a survey that can't even spell "webOS" properly!

    Am I reading this correctly?
    Palm/webOS had 0.5% of new phone purchases AFTER Leo killed webOS and months after the last official phone release?

    Nielsen sure accounted in units and then to %.

    IMHO the data is reliable because HTC was 1st in 3Q2011 and after the iPhones 4S launch, Apple surpassed HTC in the 4Q2011.

    There are no global 4Q2011 smartphone market share information yet. It would be interesting to have it ,to see if Samsung surpassed Apple worldwide , and the final results for the full year 2011.

    Your interpretation of webOS is right.

    The information is for recent acquirers with 0,5% Sure Palm OS is not there, but webOS is.

    This is a survey of what a sample of people in the US said that they "preferred".

    You can look back at these surveys and then compare to what buyers actually buy as reported by Gartner and Canalys. They have nothing to do with each other.
