Android Edges Apple for Smart Phone Market Share (US)

The Android train keeps gathering steam as evidenced by the latest report from The NPD Group. According to their estimates, Android has eclipsed Apple for second place in the United States in market share, behind Research in Motion. Android sits at a 28 percent share while RIM commands 36 percent. Apple trails in third with 21 percent.

Things will get interesting with the release of several new Android super phones this summer in addition to a new iPhone.  Blackberry 6 is due out before long, promising to breathe new life into RIM as well.  Let’s not discount Windows Mobile either.  They could come along and shake things up a bit, too.
