Android’s UK market share grows at a furious rate, should be ahead of iOS by now

According to the latest numbers posted by comScore, Android is continuing with its plans of world domination at freakishly fast pace. The market share of Google’s operating system grew by an astounding 634 percent in May 2011 in the UK in the past one year.

In comparison, iOS market share grew by only 46 percent, which might not seem much but it is still doing a lot better than the others, particularly Symbian and Microsoft, whose market shares fell by 10 and 32 percent respectively. The graph depicts that iOS is ahead of Android by 0.4 percent but in all likelihood Android must have have already blitzed past by now.

Meanwhile, RIM showed a positive growth of 59%, which is pretty good considering the gloom and doom surrounding the company.
