It’s Nielsen’s turn to post its report on the US smartphone market in the second quarter of this year. The numbers show that Android continues to dominate while iOS is a very solid second. The two platforms combine for a total of 86.2% of all smartphones in the States. In the second quarter of the year, Android powered 51.9% of US smartphones, while 34.3% ran on Apple’s proprietary iOS. RIM‘s faltering BlackBerry OS came a very distant third, taking 8% of the Stateside smartphone market . The gaps are even more pronounced among recent acquirers. Of all the US citizens who bought a smartphone over the past three months, a whopping 58.6% chose Android and another 33.0% went for iOS. The trend is understandable, given that the iOS flagship – iPhone 4Swas already nine-months old at the end of that quarter, while the Android-powered One X had just made it to the market.
