Apple's iPhone is still the most popular phone on the mobile Internet, but this is starting to change as Google's Android platform is posting tremendous gains. While the iPhone still has about double as much marketshare as Android in the global market, last month Android got pretty close to overtaking the iPhone in the US market.
Looking at relative smartphone platform traffic in the US, the iPhone has dropped several points from its 55 percent last fall, but still holds nearly half the share. Android in particular has seen huge growth, nearly catching up with the iPhone's share over the last several months as a number of Android-based devices have been released on the market. The Motorola Droid has been especially helpful in this drive, along with a number of HTC devices. RIM has slowly declined, while webOS and Windows Mobile continue to stagnate at the bottom.
