Android phones finally account for a larger share of smartphone Web traffic than the iPhone, according to StatCounter. This development, which was arguably inevitable in light of the huge unit share lead Android has opened up, has big implications for Google's (GOOG) mobile search revenue, since the company pays a much larger search revenue cut to Apple than it does to Samsung and other Android OEMs. The iPad still has a big edge in tablet Web traffic over Android rivals.
