Default 85 percent of smartphones sold in Q2 2012 ran Android or iOS

According to a new report from market research firm IDC, 85 percent of smartphones sold during the second quarter of 2012 ran either Android or iOS. Android, of course, accounted for the vast majority of that figure with 68.1 percent market share, while iOS was at a much smaller but no less respectable 16.9 percent.

BlackBerry continues to hold on to third place with 4.8 percent market share, but RIM is rapidly losing ground to other operating systems like Windows Phone, which is currently sitting at 3.5 percent market share for the second quarter of 2012. But while Windows Phone’s market share may be small, its momentum is growing. The OS recorded a 277% increase over the previous quarter.

Believe it or not, Samsung actually accounted for 44% of all Android sales – more than the next seven Android OEMs combined. On Windows Phone, however, Nokia led the charge. Will anything be able to rival the Samsung/Android juggernaut?
