According to attorney William Peacock in a post on FindLaw’s Technologist, seven out of ten smartphones sold today run on Google Inc.’s Android operating system. One reason, he said, is that more companies, such as Samsung Electronics Co., LG Electronics, Motorola Mobility and HTC Corp., make Android phones. The iPhone is only manufactured by Apple Inc.
Peacock said Android may be dominating the general smartphone market, but lawyers are not buying them. According to Peacock, Apple has 62 percent of the lawyer-smartphone market versus 22 percent for Android and 16 percent for other smartphone manufacturers.
While the wider app market isn’t as Apple-first as it used to be, Peacock said, “when it comes to law-related apps, lawyers go iPhone for the apps, and the apps go iPhone because of the lawyers.”
