2012 Forecast: Android to Outsell Apple’s iOS; Android Partners Post Highest 2nd Quarter Growth Rates

It what isn’t really a news revelation, website iSuppli states that Android will be used in 75 million smart phones by 2012, up from 5 million in 2009. Meanwhile, iOS usage will amount to 62 million in 2012, up from 25 million in 2009. But if you take into account that Android is currently selling 200,000 units per day (and this number stays the same), and use the months August through December for the remainder of the year, Android should sell 30 Million + units through the end of the year. Android’s share of the global smartphone operating system market will be an estimated 19.4 percent in 2012, up over 2.7 percent in 2009. Apple’s share of the global smartphone operating system market for iOS for iPhones will grow to an estimated 15.9 percent in 2012, up over 13.8 percent in 2009. Android’s share of global smartphone OS usage will rise to 22.9 percent, but iOS for iPhones will drop to 15.3 percent.

Meanwhile, the worldwide smartphone market grew 50% year over year. Impressive huh? But the majority in drive of these sales were Google’s Android operating system. Google’s smartphone partners, such as HTC and Samsung, posted the highest year-over-year growth rates.
