FORTUNE -- This is a surprise.

Although Apple (AAPL) hasn't released a new iPad or iPhone in seven months, and Samsung claims it shipped 10 million new Galaxy S4s in May, Android's Web share slipped a bit month over month while Apple's edged up, according to a NetApplications report issued Saturday.

Based on visits to the company's 40,000 client sites, Apple's share of mobile Web traffic grew in May to 59.5% from 59.04%, while Google's (GOOG) share fell to 24.4% from 26.02%.

Go figure.
