In what comes as news of Apple starting to conquer yet another major market, Apple’s new iPhone 5 – which is all of three months old – has already secured 26.7% of the global LTE device market.

At least that is the claim presented in a new report from Strategy Analytics.

Although Android handset makers have been pumping out countless LTE devices for months now, Apple has managed to garner close to a thirty percent share with only three devices – iPhone 5, Retina iPad, and iPad mini.

Here’s the kicker — Strategy Analytics never said if the iPad is factored into its LTE data. But, in the final analysis, regardless of whether the iPhone 5 stands alone, it remains a staggering achievement for Apple to obtain such a significant market share in such a short period of time.

    Great article and further reinforces the opportunity for marketers to start getting content into Passbook (the native wallet in iOS6). It is probably the most effective, and efficient way to connect with prospects and existing customers, without having to invest in an app etc.

    I think you can find stats to reenforce your view of apple v. android, but it's fairly plain that Apple will continue to lead until it decides it doesn't want to anymore. This article simply furthers that point.
