NPD Group's Mobile Phone Track has indicated that, based on unit sales to consumers, Android OS devices have passed iPhone OS devices in popularity, taking the number two spot in the U.S. market. RIM remains the leader with its BlackBerry platform. Specifically, NPD reports that RIM held a 36% share of new phone buys, Android took 28% and Apple's iPhone products accounted for 21%. Apple is widely expected to announce a new iPhone device at its Wordlwide Developer's Conference in early June. NPD also reported that the iPhone's exclusive carrier partner in the U.S., AT&T, sold 32% of all U.S. phones, followed closely by Verizon Wireless with 30%, then T-Mobile and Sprint at 17% and 15% respectively.
