The gap is even larger worldwide, with Apple getting about 14% of sales in EU. Android had 68%

However, Android is not a company and you are talking about sales made by many manufacturers and hundreds of phones. Android/Google provides the OS free of charge to anyone that wants to use it.

Android might have a lead overall, but Apple is but one company with just three phones on the market (OK, and an iPad) and I think that says something.
