Report: U.S. Smartphone Market: Apple and Google In Leading Positions [tech.fortune.cnn.com]
There's good news and bad news for Apple (AAPL) in Canalys' final country-level report on what it describes as world's largest smartphone market -- still, for now, the United States.

The good news is that Apple took the lead from Research in Motion's (RIMM) BlackBerry with shipments of 5.5 million iPhones in the U.S. for a 26.2% market share.

The bad news is that Google's (GOOG) Android is winning the OS wars, shipping 9.1 million units to the U.S. market for a 43.6% share.

Yes, it's not at all surprising to see that Android is now the hottest selling OS on any handset. Just a few months ago all the naysayers were were digging it an early grave or saying it was a still birth compared to Apple. Sometimes things just take time to be nurtured along before the real growth spurt happens like we're seeing now.

Now, not only does Android dominate the landscape, but it's starting to send other OS's to their grave, such as the once popular Symbian has been recently pronounced dead as partners pulled out.

Which immediately brings to mind the HP $1.2 Billion Palm debacle that fits into the 3% of "other", will it be the next OS to be tossed on the bonfire?
