"Android is easily dominating all other competitors in the mobile space"

RIM, Microsoft hardest hit:

According to ComScore, 70 percent of handset owners sent out an SMS during the three-month period. Using a browser and downloading applications came in second and third with 41.1 percent and 40.6 percent of Americans engaging in those activities, respectively...

...ComScore's study is just the latest research to conclude that Android is easily dominating all other competitors in the mobile space. Earlier this month, another research firm, NPD, said that during the second quarter, Android was running on 52 percent of all smartphones sold in the U.S., besting iOS, which secured 29 percent market share. NPD concluded that BlackBerry OS had 11 percent share... Android's success is helping the U.S. smartphone market explode. During the three-month period ended July, 82.2 million people in the U.S. owned a smartphone, ComScore found. That figure was up 10 percent from the prior three-month period...

According to ComScore, Samsung's handsets proved to be most popular during the last three-month period, earning 25.5 percent market share. LG's devices had 20.9 percent share. Motorola, Apple, and RIM rounded out the top five with 14.1 percent, 9.5 percent, and 7.6 percent share, respectively.

I was speaking with an iPhone user today who said that five years from now, almost every single person in America would have a smartphone. That may be a conservative estimate.
