We have an interesting article for you to read now, which confirms that Google’s Android phones are now outselling Apple’s iPhones. Could Google continue this trend with the release of the HTC EVO 4G on Sprint, or will the Apple iPhone 4G return things back in Apple’s favor.
As reported from BGR, the latest figures have been obtained via the most recent NPD results in Q1 of this year. According to a chart, RIM is leading the way with U.S smartphone share at 36%, while Android is in second place with 28%, followed by the Apple iPhone on 21%.
Considering that Google’s Android OS is now available on every major carrier in the U.S and Apple have not released a new iPhone handset since June 2008, this will probably not come as a surprise to most of you.
However, things should start to get very interesting when the Android-equipped HTC EVO 4G on Sprint releases, along with Apple’s iPhone 4G handset. The EVO 4G is rumored to be launching on June 6th, while the iPhone 4G could also be available early June.
What are your thoughts on this? Will Google still be able to maintain a lead over Apple, or will the release of the iPhone 4G change everything?
