Apple's iPhone dominates the mobile browsing market, according to the latest figures published by web analytics firm Net Applications.

The firm said iPhone's has "a commanding lead" with a 66.6% market share compared with second place Java ME's 9% and Windows Mobile's 6.91%.

Google's Android and BlackBerry are rapidly gaining market share, according to Net Application's figures.

"This does not mean that iPhone web browsing is shrinking, because the overall market is growing rapidly," Net Applications said.

Adroid, released in October 2008, is already level-pegging with Symbian in fourth position with a 6.15% market share, followed by Palm with 2.37% and BlackBerry with 2.24%.
