Hi, I'm an Android. And I'm an iPhone.
Nielsen's recent report shows that the iPhone is still the most desired smartphone in the US. With 89 percent of its users saying that they want their next smartphone to run on iOS. Six percent say they want their next phone to run on Android with two percent of iPhone owners surveyed saying they will go with RIM's BlackBerry OS and three percent choosing "Other" OS.
Meanwhile, 71 percent of Android users intent to stay with Android as their next OS, while 21 percent say they want iOS in their next phone. Five percent say "Other" and three percent want to go with BlackBerry.
RIM is having a hard time keeping up with only 42 percent of its users wanting their next phone to be a BlackBerry. 29 percent say they will go with the iPhone, 21 percent want to go Android and seven percent say "Other."
In the second quarter of 2010, Nielsen's findings show that the Android OS has overtaken iOS in sales. Though it's important to keep in mind that many phones use Android while only iPhones are equipped with iOS. In addition to that, only one carrier officially sells the iPhone. Still, this could end up being the next "PC vs Mac" battle for market share.
