Android platform surges ahead

Research in Motion (36%) is still king for the time being but there’s a new number 2 mobile platform. Android (28%) has overtaken Apple iPhone (21%) OS in popularity. The number of handsets available across multiple service providers probably has a lot to do with the Google platform’s success. The Apple iPhone is still only available exclusively through AT&T in the U.S. Sprint meanwhile has decided to stop selling the Nexus One. (link) The sales of the Google phone are lagging significantly behind the iPhone however the OS continues to show up on more and more phones.

Perhaps we are seeing a consumer backlash from recent corporate Apple behavior. Problems with AT&T’s 3G service, the arbitrary app store approval process, closed OS platform, public spat with Java, and the mishandling of the lost iPhone prototype. However if you love Apple, you will still love them regardless. On the other side, if you dislike Apple you will continue to do so. Each side remains polarized as ever.
