Android and iOS continue to fight for the US smartphone market and according to a recent NPD study, both companies saw an increase in marketshare for Q2 2011. Android takes 52% of the marketshare whilst Apple plays with its 29%. webOS, Windows Phone 7 and Windows Mobile all stuck with 5% shares with no yearly change which left BlackBerry OS to have an 11% decline. Google's new toy, Motorola, saw a 3% year-on-year decline, with [surprisingly] the biggest loss coming from Android-based unit sales.

This was a 50% drop to 22% of the market. Interesting, isn't it? Maybe Google can swing things around for Motorola now that they own them. Only time will tell.
