This week brought updated data from Nielsen on the race for smartphone supremacy. According to Nielsen, for the period November, 2010 - January, 2011, Android had a 29% share, RIM Blackberry 27% and Apple iOS 27%. This is before the iPhone went on sale from Verizon however, so things are bound to change. Still, the Nielsen data shows the continued strength of Android. From a video perspective, because current smartphones ship with the updated Android OS which supports Flash video, they are much more flexible.
