Report: iPhone soon will surpass Linux as Web browser platform

Dear reader Walt sends along his latest blog post in which he references this article from Ars Technica by my main man Charles Jade. Money quote from Charles: “Finally, the iPhone has tripled its admittedly meager market share, going from .04 percent in July to .12 percent six months later. What’s interesting here is not the uptake so much as how the iPhone is categorized—as an OS. It’s quite possible that by the end of 2008, the iPhone will surpass Linux, which isn’t too hard since it rates only .63 percent. Still, it’s something of an accomplishment, considering that the iPhone will have been out only 18 months.”

Bigger than Linux. Who would have ever imagined? I’m getting all misty. Peace out.
