Depending on who you ask and when you ask them, Android could be dominating iPhone in the U.S., or it could be the other way around. According to the folks at ad network Chitika, Android is still lagging slightly behind the iPhone here in the U.S. and will continue to do so until February of 2012. According to Dan Ruby over at Chitika, as of December 14th the iPhone outnumbered Google's green robot on their network by a rate of 2:1. The gap between the two will slowly shrink until February 2012 (the 16th, to be specific), says Ruby, when Android's market share will finally surpass the iPhone's.
Considering that there are around 38 Android phones available on the major four carriers right now and only three iPhones available on one carrier, it's not really surprising that Google's OS will eventually surpass Apple's in terms of market share. Whenever the mythical Verizon iPhone hits, I'm sure that it'll cause Android's growth to stutter a bit. For the most part, though, the green robot is going to continue doing its thing for some time. What do you all think of Chitika's report? Will it take Android another year to surpass the iPhone's market share, or is it going to happen much sooner than that?
