Default Android Smartphones Outpaced Apple's iPhone in Q1 2010

According to NPD, Android-based devices accounted for 28 percent of the smartphone market while smartphones running Apple's iPhone OS garnered just 21 percent of the market. Both, however, were well behind RIM which still commands 36 percent of the market.
"As in the past, carrier distribution and promotion have played a crucial role in determining smartphone market share," said NPD's Ross Rubin. "In order to compete with the iPhone, Verizon Wireless has expanded its buy-one-get-one offer beyond RIM devices to now include all of their smartphones."

And thorgal is watching this attentively But I think I know what will happen next quarter when Apple releases its new iphone... The current model is almost a year old and it's no more than logical you get some market erosion...
