As Smartphone Growth Skyrockets, Which Brand Will Dominate?

Recent numbers from both Nielsen and metrics firm Canalys suggest that Google's Android platform will take the top spot. Nielsen says Android grabbed 27 percent among new mobile subscribers in the U.S. over the past six months, just beating out Apple's 23 percent share. Even more impressive is a report from Canalys that says Android grew by 886 percent between April and June compared to the same period last year.
