The iphone is doing great, the Blackberry is still a leader, and Android’s growth is phenomenal

A new report from Canalys shows that Android grew an impressive 886% in Q2 2010 and became the largest smartphone platform in the United States. The U.S. smartphone market grew 41% year over year and it is the largest in the world. Approximately 14.7 million smartphone units were sold in the U.S., which accounts for 23% of the global market.
Canalys VP and Principal Analyst, Chris Jones, explained the results by saying, “In the United States, for example, we have seen the largest carrier, Verizon Wireless, heavily promoting high-profile Android devices, such as the Droid by Motorola and the Droid Incredible by HTC.” These products have been well welcomed with opened arms by the market, with consumers looking forward to download and start using the mobile applications and services, such as Internet browsing, social networking, games, navigation, and mobile banking.
