Android Best Selling Smartphone OS in the US

Nielsen recently unveiled their latest smartphone statistics based on sales data of the past 6 months. What’s also significant about this data is that it includes the first month of iPhone 4 availability. Now if you take the phenomonal sales figures of the iPhone 4 (1.7 million iPhone 4s were sold in its first three days of availability), it should tell you something about how well Android as a whole is doing. There is a definate upwards trend in the uptake of Google‘s mobile operating system, and it has finally surpassed both iPhone and Blackberry in recent sales figures.
What should be taken into account however, is that Android is used by a variety of manufacturers spread over many different models. “iPhone” consists of iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4. Among overall market share it is still Blackberry who is king, but it remains to be seen if they can hold on to that title.
