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.

Now, Android devices are very good so they may, in fact, overtake the iPhone's mindshare but there is nothing in this report to suggest that, you just twisting facts to advance your own agenda.


The facts are such: in the first quarter of 2010, Android held 28% of the market. The iPhone 21%. As simple as that. It is YOU who is coming up with all sots of reasons as to why these figures are supposedly wrong - YOU are doing the twisting, not me.

People who said Android would overtake the iPhone in sales were derided for predicting something like that - and now that IT HAS ACTUALLY HAPPENED, we're called biased because we merely point out that fact, and dare to draw some conclusions from it?

Priceless.
