For the first time since Android was released, it finally sold more phones than the iPhone. NPD Group is reporting that Android is the number two selling platform behind Blackberry in the US. Blackberries account for 36% of the market share, Android has 28% while the iPhone brings up the rear with 21%.

Watch your back Blackberry because you’re next. This is awesome news and we can thank the Droid and the Incredible for being a big part of this gain. There’s going to be a brawl this summer when the 4G iPhone is release alongside a slew of Android devices that include high, mid and low-end phones. Android will continue on it’s upwards trend due to various carrier and manufacturer support. Anyone still complaining about fragmentation now or do you think Google’s strategy is going well?
