Android climbing as it jets pass Apple in the US smartphone market for Q1 2010
With the increasing Android army moving along and storming the market, it doesn't seem like they're going to slow down any time soon to let the competition sway things out of their favor. As we continue to witness some decent Android handsets making their debut each month, it only adds to the notion that Android is surely going to shake things up for some of its competition. With that said, the open platform is vigilant in gaining market share as they jet pass Apple to take up the number two spot in the US smartphone market based on unit sales to consumers for Q1 2010. According to The NPD Group, Android is resting healthy at 28 percent market share and was able to overtake Apple who is now sitting in third place at 21 percent. Despite the hard efforts won in this latest battle, Android still requires some work in trying to take out the current king, RIM, who is the current market share leader at 36 percent. However, the outcomes after the summer festivities may change the course of the market share as we will undoubtedly witness the release of some highly-prized handsets – specifically the HTC EVO 4G and the iPhone 4. With RIM expected to launch BlackBerry OS 6 some time this summer, it'll be interesting to see how consumers will adopt the new makeover as they embark on yet another fierce battle against the competition.
