According to the NPD Group, Google's Android OS has finally managed to outsell the iPhone in the US in the first quarter of this year. 28 percent of all smartphone sales went to Android, while Apple's iPhone only managed to take 21 percent. The two still haven't gotten close to Research in Motion's BlackBerry sales, which took 36 percent.

Even though it sold more this last quarter, Android still has a long way to go in market share, where it's behind Apple, RIM and Windows Mobile, with only 9 percent. But if this growth continues, it will reach the top of the list in no time.

And there's no reason to believe that it will stop any time soon. Android has some crazy momentum at the moment, with the HTC Evo just weeks away from launch, so there's nothing to worry about.
