Figures provided to the Guardian by Kantar Worldpanel ComTech have revealed that Android has now overtaken Apple to become the UK most-used smartphone OS. It now has a whopping 36.9% market share, up from 20% the previous year. Interestingly, the markets shares of Apple and BlackBerry have only decreased minimally, which shows that despite all its negative press, RIM is still very popular in the UK. Unsurprisingly it is the market share of Symbian that has plunged, dropping from 26.7% to 13.1%. from which we could infer that people ditching Symbian tend to turn to Android. The market share of Windows Phone has also grown, reaching 2% for the first time. This has mainly been driven by sales of the Nokia Lumia 800.
