Apple's Market Share Hitting Highs
Apple's market share in both the computer and cell phone markets is hitting highs according to Net Applications.
Last month the Mac OS had 6.8% market share, compared to 5.39% for November 2006. This represents the highest market share in Apple's steady climb, which appears to be almost directly proportional to a slightly declining Microsoft Windows installed base.

In addition, Net Applications
has issued an interesting report
stating that the iPhone has quickly overtaken Microsoft's Windows Mobile as the most used mobile OS on the web.
We've been tracking iPhone usage since its launch. Total web browsing on the iPhone has topped the web browsing on all Windows Mobile devices combined, as this report shows. This report is a listing of the top operating system versions in use. It is not a measure of units sold, but the share of users browsing the internet with the devices. The iPhone has had a dramatic rise in usage share in its short time on the market Is this due to a better user interface? Larger screen?
