(PollyNews.Com) According to ABI Research reports, Android smartphone shipments decreased quarter-on-quarter for the very first time in 4Q 2014.

Certified Android shipments actually decreased from 217 million in 3Q 2014 to 206 million in 4Q 2014, only because of Apple iOS’ 90% growth from 39.3 million to 74.5 million iPhones.

Nick Spencer, Senior Practice Director, Mobile Devices, ABI Research shed light on the matter and said:

“Google’s Android is being attacked by Apple’s iOS at the high end and forked Android (AOSP) at the low end in high growth emerging markets. The Android One initiative has slowed forked Android growth, but Apple’s success has taken the high end of the market away from certified Android’s premium tier vendors.”

Spencer also added that:

“4Q 2014 has been a seismic quarter in the smartphone industry and many premium tier Android vendors may once again review their operating system and therefore content and service strategies in light of Apple and forked Android vendor Xiaomi’s success. Worrying times for Google’s mobile services and Android, but it presents opportunity for other service providers and even operating systems.”
