Android Overtakes IPhone As Most-used Smartphone In The UK

A new study shows that Android has overtaken the iPhone as the most-used smartphone in the UK. Among smartphones in use by consumers on a daily basis - not just sales - Android has 36.9% of the market, compared to 28.5% for Apple's iPhone.

The survey data comes from Kantar WorldPanel ComTech and was published earlier today in The Guardian. The data covers the four week period ending on January 22nd, and shows that Android use surged past iOS to take the top spot.

In the twelve months since Android gained 16.8%, while Apple and RIM lost 0.7% and 0.6%, respectively.
