Default Android Market Share Continues to Grow

"Canalys reports that Android now has a 49 percent market share, continuing the trend of Android being the leading smartphone operating system in the U.S. That's an increase from the 43.6 percent share reported in Q3 2010. Canalys originally attributed the popularity to the HTC EVO, Droid X, and other high-end Android devices that ate away at RIM's stronghold in the smartphone wars. This time around, much of the credit goes to a prevalence of 4G devices."

It seems that 4G is a hit in the U.S., which is translating into higher market share for Android devices sporting the newer technology. The only question that remains is whether a 4G iPhone will eat into that market share or if being the first to market will help Android to stay on top.
