BUT, Apple are the top smartphone manufacturer.

The Nielsen Company, a global information and measurement
company, have released their data for the second quarter 2011, which reveals that
Google’s Android operating system is now the most popular operating
system in the U.S consumer market, with a 39% market share. In
second place, is Apple’s iOS, with 28%, and RIM Blackberry comes in
third (20%). However, Nielsen concluded that, since Apple were the
only company manufacturing smartphones that ran iOS operating
systems “it is clearly the top smartphone manufacturer in the
United States.”

The Nielsen data is based on a study of more than 20,000
smartphone users.
