+ - AOSP is bigger than iOS->

Submitted by ozmanjusri
ozmanjusri (601766) writes "ABI Research reported in their Q4 2013 Smartphone OS results that, while Android dominated the market as expected, the runner up was somewhat surprising.

Rather than Apple's iPhones coming in a distant second, the Open Source version of Android (AOSP) not only competed with Google's certified version, but grew much faster than its corporate-endorsed sibling (137% year-on-year).

In fact, Google's Android comprised 52% of the estimated one billion devices shipped while AOSP reached 25% of the market, ahead of Apple's 10%.

Most of AOSP's growth is in China, India, and adjacent markets, possibly because Google does not offer its Play Store in those regions, however the Open Source version looks set to take a big step into other markets when Nokia's Android-based Normandy phone is released later this month."
