Wow. This would require some adding up.
The smartphone market share is constantly expanding so attempting to average percentages would be futile.
I think the best you could do is get web usage data. I know you wouldn't prefer Wikipedia as a source, but because this is web traffic data from Wikipedia it's 100% accurate. Also because Wikipedia is universally used across all OS's
Wikimedia Traffic Analysis Report - Operating Systems
However, we know that Android has been consistently outselling iOS for years, so this won't gauge anything really.
Problem is, no one wants to give their full sales statistics except Google who know they're doing well. Even if they did a lot of these stats are sales to vendors like Best Buy and not actual consumer figures.
The closest (maybe) you might be able to get is the total of 2011 figures, these sales (as most phones nowadays are on 18 - 24 month contracts) will be slap bang in the middle of 2010 and 2012, but again, hazy.
He who receives, should thank, he who gives, should be silent and if he sees no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in himself
