Perhaps it’s really not such groundbreaking news and to be honest with the slew of Android devices being launched all over the world, it did not come as a surprise to learn from comScore’s report for March 2011 that Android controls about 34.7% of the smartphone market, placing it at number one with the possibility that it might eventually command at least 50% by New Years.

RIM’s Blackberry however does not have such a happy ending and has been steadily declining as we can see from the graph where they enjoyed about 42% in 2009 but has since dropped to about 25% in 2011.

Kudos to Apple though who has managed to maintain 25% throughout the years although with Google’s Android already taking over, that 25% might eventually not be worth much any more but if we were to live by the age old adage – slow and steady wins the race. Maybe with the launch of the iPhone 5 might convince some Android users to jump ship.

Windows Phone 7 seems to be declining at a rather steady pace, dropping 0.2% from 7.7% to 7.5% but maybe with their new deal with Nokia things might start to shape up when Nokia finally announces their Windows Phone 7 device.
