Analytics firm Nielsen statistics from their Q2 2012 subscriber data has shown extend its significant lead over , with a 51.8% compared to iOS’s 34.3%. In Q1 2012, the scores stood at 48.5% for Android to Apple’s 32%. About a year ago (Q3 2011, I was unable to find the Q2 2011 data for a YoY comparison) Android had a 44.2% to 28.6% lead. These are minor growths, but it shows that regardless of the injunction requests and all the legal hoopla, and despite all the “fragmentation” talk, Apple is nowhere close to closing the gap on Android.

In the manufacturer’s stakes, is the leading OEM as expected, with their Android accounting for a 17% total marketshare. HTC is second at 14%, Motorola third at 11% and the rest accounting for 9%. Looking over at the other platforms, Blackberry has dropped from 17% in Q3 2011 to 9%. Phone 7 is stagnant at a meager 1.3%, with all the money spent on marketing still unable to get them to even half of Mobile’s 3% share.
