    Re: News - Android’s gain is RIM and Microsoft’s loss in the US

    In the smartphone market RIM is still the top dog by a considerable margin, but its share is declining rapidly due entirely to the growth of Android. Google's mobile OS gained 6.6 points of market share in the June-August quarter, with Microsoft being the other to suffer at its hands, while Apple kept hold of around a quarter of the market.
    Hmm, two interesting points here.
    #1 - Android steal share from B'berry and WinMo - so presumably that's folks trading in their business phones for 'droid based alternatives?
    #2 - How come the iPhone's share hasn't moved - I thought they were expecting a big bounce upwards caused by iPhone4?

    That said, this is the US figures, and from what I've seen they've got a weird mobile market.
