It is no secret that the Apple iPhone has been a huge success, holding 16.2% market share in 2009. However Google’s Android has now surpassed Apple in terms of market share, holding a third of the market. So does Android pose a significant threat to the Apple iPhone?

“The Android operating system has intelligently identified a gap in the market and has successfully addressed it,” commented Kareem Tawansi, CEO of software development provider, Solentive Software.

“When Microsoft first created their previous versions of Windows Mobile, they discovered a market that consisted of people who are technically able to work in an open environment; one in which their smartphone life is not governed by Apple’s iTunes,” continued Kareem.

“Google has provided the openness of Windows Mobile with the attractiveness of the iPhone user interface. I believe this is a market that will continue to grow as technology becomes increasingly mainstream and the average level of technical understanding of most users continues to increase.

“Apple’s edge is slowly starting to diminish,” concluded Kareem.
