Android Adoption Rate Growing 6X Faster Than iPhone, Says Meeker Dylan Duarte November 7, 2012 Mary Meeker, who happens to be something of an expert in Internet trends, usually publishes her findings in an annual report, but at a special Lending Club event in San Francisco last night, she handed out some juicy new facts. One of this facts was this: the Android phone adoption rate is growing six times faster than the iPhone adoption rate, which is up from the four times she reported in May. This isn’t as big of a blow to Apple as it sounds like, though, because iPad adoption rates are going up five times faster than those of the iPhone too. It’s just the iPhone that’s taking the hit. According to Meeker, there will be 1 billion smartphone users and 5 billion mobile phone users total by the end of the year. Meeker predicts that by the end of year, there will be 160 million Android devices, 100 million Windows devices, and 80 million iOS devices shipped per quarter. via Tech Crunch Share This With The World!
