Who is Winning the U.S. Smartphone Battle?

Nielsen has just released data examining the battle for domination of the U.S. smartphone industry. They note that the winner depends on whether you're looking at operating systems or manufacturers.

When it comes to consumer marketshare by operating system, Android (29%) appears to be pulling ahead of RIM Blackberry (27%) and Apple iOS (27%).

Droid software as a whole is at 29% based on the data in this article but if yu look at cellphone manufacturer apple and blackberry are bigger because droid is all split between HTC and motorola and they all have different interfaces so in realoty even though android has a higher % apple and blackberry win because anyone with an iOS/blackberry software can pick up a phone using the same software and not be confused/lost vs someone switch from htc to moto droid software or vice versa
