iPhone Sales Flat As Android Surges, Blackberry Falls
Think you can cover the marketplace with just an iPhone app? Think again. A new NPD Group survey, which probably isn't making Steve Jobs the most fun guy to hang out with right now, shows Android’s OS was installed in 44% of all smartphones purchased in Q3, an increase of 11% over Q2. Apple's iOS rose just 1% to 23% and RIM's Blackberry OS, fell to third position down from 28% to 22%. “Much of Android’s quarterly share growth came at the expense of RIM, rather than Apple,” said Ross Rubin of NPD.
