Get off your high horse, iPhone, because someone's knocking at your heels. According to the latest data, Android devices have overtaken iPhone devices in smartphone traffic.

According to a new report from AdMob, which tracks monthly usage figures for most major smartphone groups, Android overtook the Apple behemoth in March. It says that Android's operating system accounted for 46% of the entire country's smartphone usage, compared to the iPhone OS at 39%.

Those numbers were pretty much reversed just a few months ago, showing that Android is growing and perhaps the iPhone has reached the point of diminishing returns, at least until the iPhone 4G comes out (and I'll save you all from another Gray Powell joke).

Android's numbers are less impressive on a global scale, where it drove just 25% of smartphone traffic. And the Google OS continues to suffer from fragmentation due to a growing number of handsets with expandingly divergent specifications.

When it comes to sales, the iPhone also still dominates, though Android's most successful device, the Droid, is in second place.
