Chitika, the advertising and Analytics Company has released its monthly manufacturer market share reports for the month of May 2012. The results are as expected; Apple’s holds a commanding lead of mobile device usage at 64% of the market, which is almost 10 times that of its closest competitor. HTC saw a decline in usage of 0.64%, furthering the distance between its closest rival, Samsung.
The report also features future predictions. Starting with the purported release of the iPhone 5 expected in Fall 2012 look for Apple’s share of the market to increase. Further, despite the minor uptick, Chitika expect RIM to continue to slide over the course of the year as the company faces financial and strategic struggles. Chinese manufacturers Huawei and ZTE will continue to expand their presence in the US and Canada in 2012.
