According to Needham & Co. analyst Charlie Wolf, Google’s Android is experiencing some slides in the U.S smartphone market share. Analysis says, Android market share reduced to 49.5% from 52.4%.
Since 2009, this is the first time Android facing a downward graph in the market. Wolf says, arrival of Verizon iPhone 4 is the reason behind this change. Apple’s U.S. market share ballooned more than 12 points to 29.5% in the first quarter. Wolf predicts Android will get a boom again in the coming June and September quarters, but will get affected again by the launch of iPhone 5 in the fourth quarter.
