According to a new study by market research firm comScore on Thursday, Apple’s iOS is far outreaching that of Google’s Android.
[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]The results of the study show that iOS on Apple’s iPhone, iPod touch, and iPads has a combined installed base of 28.9 million users. Android’s user base is at 13.4 million users. That number includes phones and connected media devices like the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
That gives Apple a 12.4 percent share of the market and a 116 percent lead over its Android counterpart. Google has 5.7 percent share of the market.
A study of iPad owners in Europe shows that ownership extends beyond the iPhone. Smartphone users of every major brand are represented among those that also own an iPad, according to the study.
ComScore’s study of the U.S. showed that Apple’s iOS has a 59 percent lead over Google’s Android in that market as well.
