Android has overtaken the iPhone and Blackberry platforms in the US smartphone market. The Android OS now leads the others with a 43.6% market share. Apple has a 26.2% market share with the iOS platform while RIM comes in at the third place with a 24.2% share.
Microsoft’s share has plummeted down to a measly 3.0% but it is widely expected to improve following the Windows Phone 7 launch. Apple is the undisputed leader though, when it comes to hardware. The iPhone is undoubtedly the single most popular phone in the US.
Worldwide, Symbian still is a force to reckon with. It leads the market with a 33% market share. In India, Symbian (Nokia) still has over 65% of the smartphone market share.
