Android and iPhone device share stagnent for March/April -Nielsen

Even while Apple hasn’t released an iPhone since last Summer and a new Android device seems to come out every few days, the two companies have remained at their respective  month over month device shares for the first time according to the latest Nielsen survey.  Even RIM managed to only lose a point in device share in the mostly static March-April timeframe

Interestingly, Android users, though they don’t seem to pay for for Apps, download much more data (582Mb/user) than any other mobile OS users, even Apple’s data-hungry iPhone users (492Mb/user).  Sprint and T-Mobile’s unlimited plans might contribute to those numbers. Full data download figures below.
