Default Google's Android leads U.S. smartphones

Android accounted for one-third of all smartphones purchased in the April-June period.
Wednesday, August 4, 2010
(Reuters) - Smartphones running Google's (GOOG.O) Android software were the top seller among consumers in the United States in the second quarter, industry tracker NPD said on Wednesday.
Android accounted for one-third of all smartphones purchased in the April-June period, with Research in Motion's (RIM.TO) BlackBerry sliding to second place for the first time since 2007.

BlackBerry lost nine percentage points of market share, falling to 28 percent. On Tuesday, RIM unveiled a new touchscreen device as the company tries to reinvigorate its image with consumers.

Apple Inc's (AAPL.O) iPhone was in third place with a 22 percent share.

Android is available on smartphones from a number of different manufacturers.

NPD said Motorola's (MOT.N) Droid was the best-selling Android handset in the second quarter among U.S. consumers, followed by HTC's (2498.TW) Droid Incredible and EVO 4G.

Google said recently that 160,000 Android phones were activated each day during the second quarter, up from 65,000 in the first quarter.

Smartphone unit prices averaged $143 in the April-June quarter, down 9 percent from a year ago.

I am seriously considering the Droid X. My wife has an Iphone and loves it, but I am on verizon and like the service. I hear nothing but awesomeness about the Droid X!

I have a Ipod, but not cell phone.
I know I need to get one, but I can tell you it's nice not having one.

Yeah but I think that most will agree that once you have one you will find it hard to understand why you went all this time without one.... I would be lost without mine... I use it for a ton of things..

I kind of brake things and I know that the cell phone will be the first thing on the list if and when I get one.

Well, I am a landscaper and it a rough field to be in for a phone like this... My Moto1 has been durable and strong.. Dropped it a few times and it has sign of wear but other than that its a great phone!

I haven't had a land line in 10 years, only a cell phone. I also use it for all kinds of different stuff.

I have a few friends that have no land line.

I did not know that you could put iTunes songs on the droid.

Yeah, All I did was go into the music files of Itunes on my pc and copy and paste them onto my phone hooked up via usb.

When my droid is linked to the pc it performs as a storage device. Makes it easy for photo and music transfers.
