NPD: Android phones outsell iPhone in US during Q2

According to a new report from the NPD Group, Android devices were the top selling smartphones by OS in the U.S. during the second quarter. The report states that Android phones accounted for 33 percent of smartphone sales, ahead of RIM/BlackBerry with 28 percent and the iPhone with 22 percent. Ross Rubin, executive director of industry analysis for NPD, notes that “while the Google-developed OS took market share from RIM, Appleā€™s iOS saw a small gain this quarter on the strength of the iPhone 4 launch.” Among carriers, Verizon Wireless maintained its lead with 33 percent of the units sold in the U.S., followed by AT&T with 25 percent, Sprint with 12 percent, and T-Mobile with 11 percent. Notably, both this and a Neilsen report from earlier in the week placed Apple in third in the U.S. smartphone market, although the Neilsen report had BlackBerry leading the market, followed by Android; it was measuring new subscribers and not sales.
