    The trend was obvious for quite some time, and now it finally happened: Android is the most popular smartphone platform among U.S. subscribers.

    According to comScore's data, Google's Android rose from 23.5% market share in October 2010 to 31.2% in January 2011, enough to securely grab the first place from RIM's BlackBerry, which fell 35.8% in October 2010 to 30.4% in January 2011.

    Apple's iOS experienced a minute growth in the same period: from 24.6% to 24.7%, while Microsoft and Palm continued losing market share, ending at 8.0% and 3.2%, respectively.





    Recent data from Canalys showed that Android is also the world's Android smartphones this year, we're sure that Android will continue doing well throughout 2011.
