Google Android surpasses iPhone in the US Q1

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

Well i figured it was coming, Google Android is quickly climbing to be the number 1 selling smart phone in the US, in less than 6 months it has exceeded iPhone sales, and is moving fast to compete with RIM. They need an app that can emulate and interact with BlackBerry Messenger, then I would even get one!

According to NPD, devices running Android accounted for 28 percent of the units sold to U.S. consumers in the first quarter of 2010. BlackBerry devices made by Research In Motion, which use RIM’s homegrown operating system, took the top spot with 36 percent of the U.S. market. Apple’s iPhone, which had been in the No. 2 spot previously, fell to third place with 21 percent of the market.

Just remember that Google Android’s success can mainly be because it runs on many different pieces over different vendors. Also iPhone hasn’t changed their front end since it was first released! Google Android also handles multitasking, one of the many things that iPhone just got multitasking in its latest OS(and they still haven’t changed the front-end!).
