Android is Good. No debating that, but I wanna see how Tizen fares against it in about 2 years when it's matured.
The reason why iOS is gaining is because RIM is loosing much sales...

Android accounted for 51.7% of all smartphone purchases in Q4, but its share in November and December dropped to 48.7% and 46.9%, due to the strong iPhone sales. The Apple platform had a market share of 44.5% in December...
Wait... Android sold more in the whole quarter and more in December and yet you manage to bring some good news for iOS?
You see, Android phones sell all year, not just at Christmas, and even then, they sell more.

Since android failed to leap forward this time , iOS Leaped and still this list doesnt include ipod touches and iPads and iOS increases to >50% if they are included aswell. Maybe android will get 40% or so.

I havent heard iPhone users to choose WP7 devices, but android users have been very happy with their WP7 devices.
This sounds like a big problem for android in future. But it's great for competition android need to lose some market in future. I want to have more good options than iOS and android.
Android doing well because its the easiest to use,an alot of Nokia symbian users switch to Android as they are roughly the same,because Nokia chose Windows,Android seems to be the only software other than Symbian the allows Bluetooth sending an recieving,plus you can put micro sd cards in Android phones but iPhones an Windows phones will not let you do that

Android still rules and IOS is doing a great job but tough luck for Nokia and i'm sure they will file bankruptcy soon with their beloved WP7 which is less than 2% and it has been released for over a year with a popularity over last ten years with WM6 which proves that WP/WM is not welcome by users

How can apple close the gap to android when in the last 3 months there were 20% more devices sold with android platform?
Dissapointment on Symbian...still loosing ground even vs. the WP7
True, but just an observation. It appears about equal. There may have also been a fair few activations of new contracts, undoubtedly.

That is quite a jump for iOS. However, the decline in Android seems about the same as the increase in iOS. Could be upgrades that have gone over to Apple? If so, Apples marketing sure did work.
