Android at 33% of US Smartphone Sales, Pasting Apple and RIM

Posted by at 10:26 am on August 4, 2010

Android has overtaken both the iPhone  an the BlackBerry as the top selling smartphone platform in the US, per and NPD Group Report    released today. One third of all smartphones sold this spring were running Google’s platform. Most of the losses came at RIM’s expense, as it dropped to 28 percent. The iPhone 4 launch helped Apple gain share at 22 percent.

Despite launch promotions, it was Motorola’s soon to be discontinued original Droid that led Android sales. The HTC Droid Incredible’s continued display shortages for much of the spring kept it from reaching its potential, but the Evo 4G was the third-strongest for similar reasons.

Android’s success, and the BlackBerry’s failure, could be directly attributed to Verizon. The one provider is responsible for a third of all smartphone sales in the country.
