U.S. Smartphone Market Share in Q1 2010Market research firm NPD Group recently announced that Google’s Android OS outsold the Apple iPhone in the U.S. last quarter. However, after this announcement Apple was quick to point out that when results for all countries are factored in, its smartphone still outsold all Android models combined in Q1.

Sales of Android OS models and iPhone OS models are growing strongly, and only time will tell which one comes out on top. But the battle is sure to be a hard-fought one, as billions of dollars are at stake.

Of course, it’s important to keep in mind that neither of these companies currently¬†have the lead in smartphone sales. Worldwide, that honor goes to Nokia, and in the U.S. BlackBerry-maker RIM is on top.
