On Poynter.org, Regina McCombs writes, "We've known this was coming, but new research announced today from Canalys makes it official: Android is now the largest selling smart phone operating system in the U.S., with nearly 44 percent of the market, and it's making inroads on Nokia around the world."

McCombs recommends that readers also check out Sarah Perez's ReadWriteWeb post, Android Becomes Top Mobile Operating System in U.S., No. 2 Worldwide. Perez writes, "For Apple, there is some good news - it has now jumped ahead of Blackberry maker RIM with a 26.2% market share in the U.S. compared with RIM's 24.2%. Worldwide, Apple reached 17% share, beating RIM's 15%."
