While the iPhone is the most popular smartphone in the U.S, Android is now the most dominating platform. RIM, creator of the Blackberry line saw its share go down by 6 points leaving it at 22 percent, while Apple saw a rise by about 1 point, to make it 23 percent. In the above chart, RIM on a year to-year basis is seen to have dropped dramatically, while Apple much less so. Android as a platform on the other hand, saw a surge to have 44% of handsets using Google’s operating system.
This proves that Android is moving faster at the pace of quarters than anyone might have perceived, and as for RIM, let’s just say they don’t look to well. Via: NPD
