Android Outsells Apple iPhone At Last, Says NPD
Android sales accounted for 28 percent of smartphone sales last quarter, NPD reports. That puts Android ahead of the iPhone’s 21 percent, and within striking distance of Research in Motion’s BlackBerry, which took 36 percent.
It’s worth noting that while Android had a great quarter, it still lags behind RIM, Apple and even Windows Mobile for total market share, according to recent statistics from ComScore. Google’s operating system had 9 percent of the market as of February 2010, compared with the iPhone’s 25.4 percent, so Android won’t catch up for a while, if at all.
