Who is number 1? Apple, RIM, Android? Nielsen paints us a pretty picture to tell us…

Who do you think is number 1 in the smartphone/mobile phone wars? Most of the time this question is battled out in the forums or on twitter by the fan boys and girls, and is a relatively abstract argument. Not today though, as our pals at Nielsen have put together a beautiful visual aid to tel us who is leading, and even breaking it down by age. Most of the stats come out like you would expect, with Apple, and RIM being the top two, but something new is emerging in the manufacturer battles, as HTC is slowly climbing up the ranks thanks to their Android handsets. Also it appears as though the youngsters are starting to favor android OS more and more as opposed to Apple’s IOS and RIM’s Blackberry OS. Check out the graphs and let us know what you think.
