It's official now guys. (At least from one marketing company's perspective) As of Novermber of last year, our beloved 'Andy' has now unseated the iPhone in U.S. smartphones! According to the above report from market research firm comScore, Google's Android based smartphones achieved a U.S. smartphone marketshare penetration of 26 percent, while Apple is just behind with 25 percent. RIM still holds the number one crown in the U.S. with 33.5 percent; although, I'm sure with how quickly Google is racing ahead and outstripping both Apple and RIM, the Android will wear the crown soon enough!
[Updated] Of course, it's important to point out that this report is in somewhat of a contrast to the Nielsen report we shared with you, here, previously. According to Nielsen ratings, iPhone is still slightly ahead, with Android in 2nd, and RIM falling a distant third. I wish these 'marketing' companies would get together and average out their data.
