Report: Android Phones Climb to 28PCT [pcmag.com]
A new report published Monday by the NPD Group finds that sales of Android phones unexpectedly topped Apple for the first quarter.
Based on more than 150,000 self-reported surveys by U.S. consumers NPD found that sales of phones using the BlackBerry OS were first, at 36 percent. But Android phones climbed to 28 percent, above Apple at 21 percent.
The numbers are somewhat unexpected, given that other research firms, such as comScore, have placed Android phones, which has placed the Android OS at 10 percent for February.
