PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless When Apple sued HTC, and targeted Android specifically (news which came out of the blue), many people, including myself, were convinced this was Apple letting the world know they were afraid of Android's rising popularity. This notion was laughed away by many an Apple fan, but it turns out that this is most likely far closer to reality than many dare to admit: in the first quarter of 2010, Android conquered the number two market share spot from the iPhone in the US - and by a wide margin too. Update: Added a graph which better shows the trend.

The author of this particular research report made the point that the volume of Android devices is being driven by carrier agreements - in the US it's available on all carriers while the iPhone is only available on AT&T- and also by Verizon's 2 for 1 program (where you get 2 Android phones for the price of 1).

Your gleeful comment about how the iPhone will be relegated to 10% market share is therefore somewhat premature - and also does tend to demonstrate that your rather biased in your reporting.
