Android vs. Apple phones

What have you noticed when you’ve seen others pull out their smart phones or talked with friends about the type of phone they’re using, are you seeing more Android or more IPhones?

Research firm IDC says Android is increasing it’s hold on the mobile phone market, going fromĀ a 47% worldwide share a year ago to 68% today.

The market share for IPhones fell slightly to 17%.

Most of the people I see with smart phones are people I work with, and I’m seeing mostly IPhones, which is contradictory to the information above. And that’s why I put the question out there, what types of phones are you seeing most people using?

As far as other operating systems, Blackberry and Symbian are each below 5% market share with Windows phones having even less.

And if this trend continues, does it mean that Google will be the next Microsoft?
