The Nielsen Company has released their latest set of numbers and things are looking great for Android once again. According to the figures as of Q42011 46.3 percent of all smartphone owners surveyed were making use of Android while Apple was close behind with 30 percent.

Feature phones were the biggest losers here though, 46 percent of US mobile consumers chose using a smartphone over a feature phone with 60 percent of those who bought a new device in the past three months -- going with a smartphone vs. a feature phone at the time of purchase.
