At the beginning of the last month, I have elaborated every second Smartphone in the US are being powered by Android. In February of this year, Android devices captured over half of Smartphone market in the U.S, followed by iOS with 30.1% of market share.

According to another report, there were 106 million Smartphone users in the US till March of this year. The report also stated that Android dominated over 51.0% of the U.S market in Q1 ending in March of this year, while iOS had 30.7% market share. But, a research analysis firm “Nielsen” has reportedly stated that 50.4% users in the U.S. had Smartphone in till the end of March 2012, up 47.8% in December last year.

However, there is little discrepancy between our previous stats and recent stats of the research analysis firms. According to Nielsen, Apple led in the Smartphone handsets manufacturer segment during Q1 ending March of this year, but our previous stats revealed that Samsung was top OEM manufacturer with 26.0% of market share in the country during the same period. However, I am agree with the firm that Android was the top Smartphone OS in the U.S in Q1 ending March of this year.

According to our previous stats, Android was dominating with 51% market share in the U.S in March of this year, followed by iOS, RIM, Microsoft and Symbian with 30.7%, 12.3%, 3.9% and 1.4% respectively. But, a recent report from Nielsen stats that Android had 48.5% market share in March of this year, followed by iOS, RIM and Windows Mobile with 32.0%, 11.6% and 4.1% respectively.

Indeed, it’s very interesting to know, who makes up for dizzying growth of Smartphone owners in the U.S. The graph (below) is clearly demonstrating that Asian/Pacific Islanders have incredibly contributed  to the growth of Smartphone owners in the US. It’s astounding that 50.9% female mobile subscribers in the U.S had Smartphone in Q1 ending March of this year.

In a previous report, I have discussed how households income, age and education background determined the ownership of Smartphone devices in the U.S. However, Nielsen has also illustrated in its latest report that Smartphone are particularly more popular among age group of 25 to 34, more than two out of three owned Smartphone in March of this year. In the U.S, almost three in five Hispanic mobile subscribers used Smartphone till the March of this year.
