What it’s winning, I have no clue. It certainly isn’t winning with people who actually use their smartphones as smartphones:
A new report from Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster features an independent analysis of traffic for 10 of the top 100 mobile websites. The data led Munster to conclude that iOS users are “generally more engaged with their mobile devices.”
Piper Jaffray looked at Answers.com, Tumblr, ChaCha, Examiner, LinkedIn, Bleacher Report, Hubpages, White Pages, Squidoo, and Dictionary.com. Among those sites, Apple’s iOS platform averaged better than 65 percent of all traffic across February and March, while Android was under 30 percent.
Also of note was the fact that iOS gained share from February to March, increasing from 65.3 percent to 66.4 percent. That gain came largely at the expense of Google’s Android platform, which saw its traffic share dropping from 29.7 percent in February to 28.7 percent in March.
Will Android ever generate the search revenue for Google that iOS does?
