android-shareThe iPhone may still be the defacto standard when it comes to anything in the consumer smartphone realm, but Android would like to remind you that they aren’t giving up. In fact, according to the latest AdMob reports, Android is actually biting away at Apple’s share as well as making mad grabs from a few other OS’s dinner plates.

The chart shows Apple still maintains a 2 : 1 lead as far as OS market share goes, however, Android is again closing that gap. Of all the members present, Symbian and Windows Mobile bring up the back end of the pack. If they follow their recent trends, expect their shares to sink further and further as RIM, Apple, and Android claim even more of the mobile market.

**It’s worth noting that AdMob stats don’t highlight individual units owned or market share of actual devices. Instead, AdMob shows how much users of said OS’s use the mobile web.
