Smartphone Race: iPhone Holds Its Lead Over the Droid Pack

With a 44.8 percent market share, Google’s Android OS is the most popular smartphone platform in the United States, according to comScore. Yet it doesn’t run on the country’s most popular hardware. That honor belongs to Apple’s iPhone.

According to NPD, the iPhone 4 and 3GS continued to hold the top two positions in U.S. smartphone sales during the third quarter, despite the ever-lengthening conga line of Android handsets parading to market these days.

  1. Apple iPhone 4
  2. Apple iPhone 3GS
  3. HTC EVO 4G
  4. Motorola Droid 3
  5. Samsung Intensity II

 
Not included in NPD’s rankings is the new iPhone 4S, which arrived at market in mid-October and has been setting sales records ever since. Given that, will Apple sweep the top three spots in U.S. smartphone sales in the fourth quarter? Certainly seems possible.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
