Palm Clinging to 1% of US Market Share
According to the latest Nielsen survey figures, WebOS is rapidly losing market share to Android, iOS, and BlackBerry, as it clings to just 1.3% of the overall U.S. smartphone market share. Stunningly, Nokia's Symbian OS, long considered a no-show in the US market, still has nearly 3x the market share than that of WebOS.
Even more chilling, according to Precentral.net, is Nielsen's classification of "Palm OS" in its data—this includes both WebOS devices and classic Palm OS Garnet devices such as Treos and the Centro. According to Nielsen, Palm's WebOS, presumably falling into the catch-all category of "other", did not even make a dent in the "next desired smartphone operating system" figures.
