[CNNmoney/tech] Android passes BlackBerry and Apple as No. 1 on smartphones

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Android is now the most-used smartphone operating system in the United States -- a stunning race to the top from a platform that didn't exist just 27 months ago.
Nearly one third, or 31.2%, of U.S. smartphones ran Google's (GOOG, Fortune 500) Android OS in January, according to a study released Monday by comScore. That outpaced the 30.4% of American smartphone owners who use BlackBerry devices, which are made by Research in Motion (RIMM).

Not sure is it a repose, but ya


Now Android is on top, it'll start a downward trend, whats goes up must come down right?

The fact that some users here actually care about user's phone preferences just shows how insecure they are.

This is a flame topic just waiting to happen.
I prefer a simple phone, many of the Android guys love to tinker with their phones, I use mine for music, texting, calls, and games. Nothing more, nothing less.

I just purchased an iPhone 4 on Verizon's network with a 25% reduction and it's a nice phone.
It's just the way I like my phones to be, user friendly with a very simple UI.

That chart is going to be changing a lot over the course of '11, I know of many people who are changing to the iPhone.

I'm not sure why everybody argues over phones, buy what you prefer.
As Clairvoyant129 said, how insecure do you have to be to argue over phones?

Yea, that's sort of what happens when you have LG, HTC, Samsung, Sony, Motorola, Dell bandwagoning onto the platform .

Not surprised, Blackberry is stagnant in the consumer market, and Apple has one phone compared to the "plethora" of Android phones you can find.
