Apples iphone is still leading Motorola’s Android

Though all the recent hype has been focused around Motorola’s suite of Android phones and how they growth is phenomenal, the fact is that Apple’s iphone is still at the top of the leader board. Motorola reported a huge 600% jump in earnings this past quarter, but it wasn’t enough for them to overcome Apple in mobile units sold. Motorola also fell far behind in smartphone sales, which left Apple atop of US phone vendors by units. (2nd quarter in a row)

Recently, Motorola has greatly increased is profits due to a push with Verizon Wireless in selling the Android-based Droid, also marketed as the Motorola Milestone. Motorola has seen a sharp decline in the total number of phones it has shipped since the iPhone arrived in 2007. On the other hand, Apple has incrementally expanded its iPhone sales as it entered new markets internationally and began adding new carriers.
