A mobile ads network and leader of mobile target advertising—Jumptap—has revealed that Android and iOS combined grabbed up 91% of all Smartphone traffic on its US mobile ad network in January this year. Apple grew enough in terms of number of users in last holiday season—the company sold 37 million Smartphones in Q4 (calendar) last year due to outburst sale of iPhone 4S.
