In the first quarter of 2011, Androids market share fell to 50 percent of smartphone unit sales, down from 53 percent in the prior quarter, according The NPD Group, a market research firm.
Wolf predicted that Android would regain share in the June and September quarters before a material decline” in the December quarter following the launch of the iPhone 5.
