Updates Adoption Stats for Smartphones

Today, Nielsen released stats for the mobile phone market. From November of 2010 to January of 2011, Android represents 29% of market share with Apple and Blackberry each at 27%. However, without time constraint, total market share for Android compared to all smartphones is at 19%. That’s fairly rapid adoption.

Most likely, there aren’t any iPhone users jumping ship to go to Android. Former Blackberry users and first-time smartphone buyers are snapping up Androids (probably due to cheap price … and the fact that they aren’t forced into a crazy long-term contract). Windows Mobile will always have its little sliver of the market.
