When it comes to the mobile Web, increasingly there are only two mobile platforms that matter: Apple ‘s iPhone and Google ‘s Android. According to market share data put out today by AdMob (which is being acquired by Google), the iPhone and Android combined captured 81 percent of U.S. mobile ad impressions on smartphones in the fourth quarter of 2009, up from a combined 55 percent in the first quarter of 2009.  Most of that growth comes from Android, which nearly doubled its market share from the third quarter to 27 percent.  The iPhone OS made up the other 54 percent. (Worldwide, the iPhone had 51 percent share and Android had 16 percent, for a combined total of 67 percent).

Increasingly this looks like a two-horse race between iPhone and Android, and all the other mobile phones don ‘t matter. 

Surprise surprise “ the iPhone platform is continuing to dominate the mobile web.  What was that Steve Ballmer (Microsoft ‘s CEO) said last year about the iPhone and the internet?  Oh yeah, this:
