Six out of every 10 smartphones shipped in the first part of 2012 ran Android, two ran iOS and the other two were a tossup, according to a new report released Thursday.
Android, Google's smartphone operating system, held a 59% market share during the first quarter of this year, which gave it a year-to-year growth of 145%, according to the International Data Corp.
During the first few months of 2012, nearly 90 million Android phones were shipped -- more than twice as many as those by Google's closest competitor, Apple.
While iOS didn't come close to any of Android's results, it still had a solid showing. Apple shipped 35.1 million units in the quarter, giving it a 23% market share and a year growth of nearly 89%.
