That shouldn't come as a shock since NPD claimed Android was outselling the iPhone earlier this year (28% versus 21%), but it's worth noting that Canalys' numbers don't include the iPhone 4, so things could shift a bit in the coming months. Regardless, it's unlikely for Apple to regain the lead so soon.
Despite being out-shipped, Apple's smartphones remain the most desired. It's said that 89% of iPhone users plan to stick with the platform on their next purchase, which compares to 71% of Android owners and 42% of Blackberry customers. Meanwhile, some 21% of Android and 29% of Blackberry users want an iPhone, and a combined 8% of iPhone owners want to leave for Android or Blackberry.
