Google’s domination plans are coming together nicely, with pretty much cornering the search engine market and now increasing their worldwide marketing share to 75% in the smartphone operating system market.

136 million Android Smartphone’s were sold in the third financial quarter of the year, boosting the Android market share from 57.5 per cent up to a massive 75 per cent. Their main competitors, Apple, rose from 13.8 per cent up to 14.9 percent.

Meanwhile, other competitors Blackberry and Symbian had shart declines in the operating system market. The former dropping from 9.5 per cent to 7.7 per cent and the latter dropping from 14.6 percent to 4.1 per cent. Symbian’s decrease, however, is largely due to Nokia’s switch to the Microsoft operating system.

IDC analyst Kevin Restivo believes this sharp increase in Android’s fortunes is very directly related to the host of Google featture tie-in’s available on the operating system.

“Google has a thriving, multi-faceted product portfolio. Many of its competitors, with weaker tie-ins to the mobile OS, do not.”
