Quantcast: Android Growing, iPhone Not

If these Quantcast numbers are correct they provide some additional insight into why Apple may have sued HTC (and Android/Google by proxy): its growth has stalled and Android is accelerating. Partly this is about AT&T exclusivity in the US. It's also about Android flooding the marketing.

Android is growing from a smaller base so its percentage growth is going to be much higher. The decline in iPhone growth reflects that everyone who is likely to move to AT&T to get the iPhone has already moved and people are now opting for "good enough" Android devices that are becoming available from their existing carriers. 

Here are the Quantcast charts:
