Google’s Android operating system vaulted over Apple’s iOS platform in market share downloads by a count of 44 percent to 31 percent, according to research released by ABI Research Oct. 24. The statistic may be surprising at first blush, considering that Apple has more than 500,000 applications in its vaunted iTunes App Store, compared to more than 300,000 for Google’s Android Market. However, Google with Android is practicing a death-by-1,000-tiny-cuts scenario versus Apple. As Google CEO Larry Page noted on the company’s third-quarter conference call Oct. 13, more than 190 million Android smartphones and tablets have been activated worldwide.
