Android, for the first time, makes up more than half of the smartphones sold in some key European markets as well as the U.S. and Australia. That's the news from analysts Kantar Worldpanel ComTech. During the last 3 months Android accounted for a whopping 84.1% of all smartphone sales in Spain, for example, and Spain saw the largest year-on-year increase in Android sales, a hefty rise of 42.8%. Other European markets weren't slouching either with Android taking 49.6% of all Italian smartphone sales over the same three month period.

In The United States Android sales actually decreased year-on-year, from 57% to 50.2%. That came as sales of iOS devices jumped from 28.7% to 37.4%. However, the most interesting case might be Australia where Android has grown its market share from 36.4% to 56.9%. The reason this is interesting is because of the intense legal wrangles that have been going on Down Under between Apple and Android. Despite Apple's efforts Android has surged, indeed Apple's own iOS has actually fallen from 36.9% to 30.5%.

A quick mention of the old guard to finish and it's what you would expect: both RIM and Nokia saw their BlackBerry OS and Symbian operating systems, respectively, decline in every market the report covered.
