PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Android and iOS, the number one and number two ranked smartphone operating systems worldwide, combined for 92.3% of all smartphone shipments during the first quarter of 2013 as Windows Phone crept past BlackBerry for 3rd place. According to the International Data Corporation Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, Android smartphone vendors and Apple shipped a total of 199.5 million units worldwide during 1Q13, up 59.1% from the 125.4 million units shipped during 1Q12." Windows Phone doubles from a few to twice few, iOS loser market share as its growth is slower than that of the overall market. BlackBerry continues slide into irrelevance.

Wow, it seems like Apple is happy just being mediocre. Android sucks up most of the market growth almost doubling devices over Q1 last year.

If trends continue we may see Apple ending up having to battle to keep their 2nd place position. WWSJD? (What Would Steve Jobs Do?)
