In this video, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner takes a look at some numbers from research firm Kantar showing that, yet again, Google's (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Android platform gained market share for the three-month period ending in Jan. 2013, up 6.4% to 49.4% of the market, with Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS slipping 4.7% to a 45.9% market share. Andrew notes that while in the previous three-month period Android was only slightly lower in its asking sales price than iOS, it had a significantly lower ASP this quarter than iOS, suggesting that Apple needs a low price point iPhone now more than ever to prevent further market share erosion.
