Nielsen: Apple iPhone drives U.S. smartphone growth as Android stagnates | MacDailyNews

Smartphones continue to grow in popularity. According to Nielsen’s May survey of mobile consumers in the U.S., 38 percent now own smartphones.

And 55 percent of those who purchased a new handset in the past three months reported buying a smartphone instead of a feature phone, up from 34 percent just a year ago.

38 percent of smartphone consumers acquired an Android device in the last 3 months. However, growth has abandoned Android as it’s numbers are flat in 2011.

It is Apple’s iPhone that has driven smartphone growth in the U.S. this year.
