Years from now, when historians cover the Smartphone Wars, May 10 2010 may very well go down as a date which will live in infamy. Today, Android OS has beaten the iPhone OS for the first time. The NPD group has sent out a press release claiming that, as of Q1 2010, Android devices account for 28% of total smartphone unit sales.

By comparison, iPhone OS is rather far behind; only 21%. BlackBerry OS still holds a commanding 36% of the market. AT&T remains the top-dog carrier; 32% of smartphones sold are on their network. Verizon is close behind with 30%, followed by T-Mo with 17% and Sprint with 15%. Smartphones also got a little cheaper this quarter; the average unit price dropped 3% to $151.
