New Nielsen data from Q1 2010 shows that 23% of mobile consumers now have a smartphone, up from just 16% in Q2 2009. Between Q4 ’09 and Q1 ’10, Android and iPhone’s share of the smartphone market grew 2% each. Smartphone leader Blackberry lost 2% share to fall to 35% and Windows Mobile lost 2% falling to 19%.

But music is not yet one of smartphone users top activities. According to the study, iPhone customers are more likely to have downloaded or play a game,  and Android users users were more likely to engage in file-transfer activities like downloading ringtones, pictures, wallpaper and uploads. For all platforms, both streaming and downloading music is comparatively low on the list.
