Granted, there are more models of Android phones than iPhones out there, and granted there have been some problems with Android customer satisfaction, and granted Android Market is infected with a whole lotta malware, but hoooooo-eeeeee does it feel good to know that Android is still kicking ass and taking names in the market-reach department these days.
According to new research by researchers who like to do a lot of research on things and such (Oh, Nielson), Android has pulled in twice as many new smartphone buyers as the iPhone. Over the past 3 months, 56% of those buying a new smartphone bought an Android device, while 28% bought an iPhone, 9% bought a Blackberry and 6% bought an "Other" (I hear they're great).
Yeah, yeah, the iPhone is just one phone by one manufacturer and Android has tons of models and yada yada....don't rain on my Android-themed parade! One more tiny asterisk: it could be that fewer people are buying the iPhone right now because they're holding off until the newest model to come out. La la la, I not listening!
