Android tops iOS in global mobile ad revenue for the first time ever

Android logoData from Opera Mediaworks (yes, it's a division of that Opera) shows that Android has taken over the top spot globally from iOS in revenue generated from mobile ads. For the first quarter of 2015, the Android platform was responsible for 45.8% of the revenue generated from mobile ads. However, that percentage required Android to own 65.2% of the mobile web traffic. Apple's iOS, on the other hand, was able to snag nearly the same percentage of mobile ad revenue as Android did (45.44% for iOS) with only 22.34% of the mobile web traffic.

BlackBerry owned 1.87% of mobile web traffic which resulted in 1.96% of the revenue generated from mobile ads. That crushed Windows Phone which had .16% of the traffic coming from mobile browsers. Microsoft's mobile OS had only .09% of the revenue coming from the mobile ad market.
