iPhone Takes the Lead in Australia
Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 01:00 PM
"There are a lot of iPhones in Australia, and IDC reports today that the number has grown enough to make the iPhone the top smartphone 'down under.'"
40% market share is certainly a large chunk, and in Australia's smartphone market it puts Apple's iPhone in the lead. Back 10% in second place is Android and Symbian drops to third with 22%. When it comes to mobile traffic, the triple team of iPad, iPhone and iPod touch obliterates the competition with a commanding 50% while Android devices are at 10.5% of all mobile traffic. So even though Android is nipping at the iPhone's heels, Apple products clearly area a favorite with the folks in Australia.
