BlackBerrys and iPhones are so last week. The American consumer has voted with his wallet and it turns out that Android is his favorite OS of the last quarter. NPD has just announced their findings for Q2 2010 and they conclude that 33 percent of phones sold during the period had Android on board as the OS.
This is the first time, since 2007, that RIM has not been in the lead for most purchased smartphone OS in the US. BlackBerrys accounted for 28% of the market and Apple’s iPhone is third with 22%. Motorola and HTC are the two big reasons for Android’s soaring ascent.
