iOS Beat Android in Overall Usage in 2012

Android vs iPhone

When it comes to using an operating system, it’s easy to think that the cheaper Android alternatives would be the more popular choice but that’s not really the case.

According to TechCrunch, Egnyte had a breakdown of the market share value in the enterprising markets for mobile OS software.

Unsurprisingly, the one-two combo of the iPhone and iPad thoroughly kicked Android’s butt throughout 2012, with an impressive 69 percent share value over the 30 percent held by Android. That’s actually up 1 percent over 2011′s numbers, mostly due to the iPhone gaining traction and the iPad losing a whole lot of traction.

TechCrunch postulates that the iPhone’s OS market share may have cannibalized the iPad in the enterprise sector, which isn’t too surprising.
