According to research firm IDC, Google’s Android OS has been bringing in some exceptional numbers during this year’s Q3. As reported by the Huffington Post, Android held a monstrous 68% of the world’s smartphone market share, followed by Apple at 17%. During Q3, a total of 104.8 million devices were sold which is quite the jump from last year’s Q3 figures.
Following Google and Apple is RIM at 4.8%, Symbian at 4.4%, and Microsoft at 3.5%. Of course, analysts will be keeping their eyes glued to Apple’s numbers as the iPhone 5 begins to become available for consumers.
