Funny how every time there is an "Android gaining" article, it gets trumpted on the front page. But when this story came out yesterday, it gets ignored. Look, these month-to-month, breathlessly reported stories are a bit silly. Market share is gained or lost over the long term. There can be blips along the way that mean nothing. But that doesn't stop the Android followers from touting every one of these month-to-month or quarter-to-quarter blips when it's in their favor. Well, this was one that wasn't in their favor: On June 3rd I made a post where I suggested: Is this the start of my predicted decline stage? Or is it merely a blip in the plateau stage? Or is it just a blip before sales accelerate again down the road? I don't know. But I find it curious that this story got ignored. To be sure, I can only find this one news source, and the way the story is written is not very clear when comparing apples (*ahem*) and oranges. So it's quite possible this is a dodgy story and should be ignored. What I'm interested in is the long-term trend, and that's something we will see as the year goes on. Actually, there was also this Electronista story that talked about the same data points. So it's not just the one story.
