96.8 percent of new smartphones sold are either iPhone or Android devices
Google and Apple continue to tighten their already dominant grip over the smartphone market, according to the latest Gartner report.
Gartner, an information technology research & advisory firm, released its quarterly smartphone sales report. And the results are not surprising. Out of 329 million recorded phone sales over the past three months, 319 million ran either Google’s Android operating system or Apple’s iOS alternative. That represents 96.8 percent of the market, matching the first quarter of this year for the highest proportion controlled by the two biggest platforms. The duopoly that these two companies have established is looking more unconquerable than ever.
