AFTER A COUPLE OF YEARS of dominating the smartphone market, it seems that Apple's Iphone is being pushed out by Android devices.

According to the latest figures from Comscore, the use of the Android OS has overtaken that of Apple's Iphone for the first time.

For the three-month period ended in November, Android usage gained 6.4 percentage points.

It was not all bad news for Apple, which added 0.8 percentage point of market share compared with the three-month period ended in August. But with growth like that, it would appear that Android is heading for even larger future gains.

The outfit that should be the most worried is the industry leader RIM, which makes the Blackberry smartphones.  It lost 4.1 percentage points and holds 33.5 per cent of the market.

Android has 26 per cent and Apple has 25 per cent, Comscore said.  The next closest is Windows, which holds 9 per cent of the market, down 1.8 percentage points, even as it recently released a new operating system.

Research outfit Isuppli in August had forecast that by 2012, Google would eclipse Apple as far as the number of smartphones on which its operating system is used.  Looks like it is already doing that.
