Google is beating Apple with the Android mobile platform.
Google has reached a major milestone of a half million new Android handsets activated each day and an amazing 4.4% growth rate per week.
Lets compare that to Apple’s iPhone activate rate which has gone down less than half of Androids rate at only 210,000 activations per day.
Google is penetrating ground that Apple has not been able to and getting into the enterprise market. Most companies have not abandoned Blackberry for iPhones but they are starting to for Android phones.
Android now has 36.4% of the US phone market while iPhones have 26%.
Globally, Google expects that in 2012 about 315 million Android smartphones will be sold representing half the market. Apple’s will be a distant second with just 18.9% of the market.
