CLEVELAND - Could it be? Is Apple's I-Phone losing its grip with consumers in favor of Google's Android?
According to the research firm IDC, Android phones accounted for 68 percent of the global smartphone market last quarter. That's four times more than the market share held by Apple.
However, the research firm notes that the new iPhone 5 is supposed to come out in September and many people could be holding out for the newest iPhone which could explain why Apple sales are down.
Blackberry shipments, once the darling of smartphones, were also down sharply in the quarter. Blackberry now only holds about 5 percent of the market.
