Android No. 2 in Smartphone market in US

BGR has featured the 2010 1st quarter mobile phone track conducted by the NPD research group. According to the research, Google's Android OS(28% market share) has overtaken Apple (21%) to occupy second position in the US smartphone market. The first position is still occupied by Blackberry's RIM OS with 36% market share.

The popularity of Android has already been predicted by tech research firm Gartner. Backing of Android by Google Inc. is one of the primary reasons cited for the success of the Android OS.

Is this a foreshadowing of what is to come and will Android garner similar market share in India? We will have to wait and see...
