According to the latest statistics released by Net Applications, the iPhone accounts for roughly two-thirds of all mobile browsing. Apple’s handset is listed as having a 66.61% share of the mobile browsing market, followed by Java ME with 9%, Windows Mobile with 6.91%, and Symbian OS with 6.15%. Interestingly, Google’s Android operating system was equal with Symbian, and has grabbed a 6.15% share of the market since its release in October. Net Applications notes that although Android and Blackberry are rapidly gaining market share, this doesn’t necessarily mean that iPhone use is shrinking, due to the rapid growth of the overall market.
