Canalys: Apple rising in worldwide smartphone market
Following up on yesterday's breakout of US smartphone market numbers that saw Apple take the leading vendor role while the Android platform dipped slightly, research firm Canalys has published a report on the worldwide market that again shows the combined versions of Google's Android operating system losing some ground -- though still strongly dominant in the worldwide smartphone market. For Q4 2012, Android slid from 74 percent to 69.2, while iOS rose from 15 percent to 22.1 percent.
