iOS's Internet market share hits a record 54.65%October 1, 2011: 12:28 PM ET
And where is Android? Still trailing Java ME, according to Net Applications
Not so, according to a report issued Saturday by Net Applications.
When measured against other smartphone/tablet operating systems, Apple's (AAPL) iOS accounts for more than half of the visits to its clients' 40,000 websites around the world. In fact,the 54.65% share that Net Applications recorded for iOS devices in September is an all-time record.
A key factor driving Apple's dominant Web presence, of course, is that iOS runs on three popular devices: iPhones, iPads and iPod touches. There is no Android equivalent of the iPod touch, and although there are multiple Android tablets -- and more about to hit the market -- none has yet to take off.
