androidviphoneYes that’s right they did it, Android knocked Apple out of the number 2 slot and comes close to RIM “the first place”. NPD did some research and found out that the Smartphone market first quarter sales give RIM’s OS 36 percent, Android 28 percent and Apple’s OS got 21 percent. They found out thanks to 150,000 completed online consumer research surveys each month. So Apple, you are not the only one out there.

“This is a very limited report on 150,000 US consumers responding to an online survey and does not account for the more than 85 million iPhone and iPod touch customers worldwide,” Apple spokesperson Natalie Harrison, told The Loop. “IDC figures show that iPhone has 16.1 percent of the smartphone market and growing, far outselling Android on a worldwide basis. We had a record quarter with iPhone sales growing by 131 percent and with our new iPhone OS 4.0 software coming this summer, we see no signs of the competition catching up anytime soon.”
