Well, here's one of the stranger stories of the day. While we're all inundated with crazy amounts of information about the current presidential candidates, maybe you're thinking to yourself, "What if the candidates were actually rival mobile operating systems?"
According a new report from Nielsen, detailing a three month period ending this past July, smartphones now make up 40 percent of all mobile phones in the United States. Android has increased its share among smartphone users in the United States by 1 percent, brining its total slice to 40 percent.
iOS continues to hold 28 percent of the smartphone market, while Windows Phone and Windows Mobile combine to grab 8 percent. RIM dropped a point and currently holds 19 percent of the market.
Forget red state or blue state, a new digital Mason-Dixon line is forming. A just released map breaks down smartphone preference by state, and the "new data establishes an evolving narrative of a North vs. South divide in the ongoing battle of the two top mobile operating systems."
