The Number: Android and iPhone dominate U.S. smartphone market

We all know smartphone use is on the rise, but we've now crossed a big threshold.  Half of all Americans with a mobile phone plan now have a smartphone. Last year, it was 38%. According to Nielsen, users have an average of 41 apps on their device.  Most users spend more time on those apps than they do using their phone's web service.

That being said, though users have more apps, they are spending about the same amount of time on them as last year.  Now there is one unfortunate thing, Blackberry, isn't even included in the report.

There's a good reason why, the number of iOS and Android users in the U.S has more than doubled over the last year. That brings me to our number tonight: 84 million. That's how many iPhone and Android users there are in the U.S.  In 2011, that number was only 38 million.
