Google’s Android was the second largest smartphone OS in the US in the first quarter of this year, according to NPD Group. It claims Android took a 28% share of new smartphone sales there, behind BlackBerry’s 36%, but ahead of iPhone’s 21%. The latter’s market share doesn’t include sales of iPod touch, though. NPD says that Apple is facing stiffer competition from its smartphone rivals. “Recent previews of BlackBerry 6, the recently announced acquisition of Palm by HP, and the pending release of Windows Phone 7 demonstrates the industry’s willingness to make investments to address consumer demand for smartphones and other mobile devices,” says NPD’s Ross Rubin.
