The figures show some tremendous growth for Google's Android OS with a whopping 68.1% market share for all smartphones shipped during the quarter. Apple's sluggish sales seem to point towards consumer patience for the long-expected iPhone 5, which should release in October.
Canada's Research in Motion, long used to receiving bad news, will be perhaps unsurprised to see their market share fall even further with just 4.8% of the market in 2012's second quarter.
"Android continues to fire on all cylinders," said Ramon Llamas, senior research analyst with IDC's Mobile Phone Technology and Trends program.
"The market was entreated to several flagship models from Android's handset partners, prices were well within reach to meet multiple budgetary needs, and the user experience from both Google and its handset partners boosted Android smartphones' utility far beyond simple telephony."
