According to a survey released this morning by Nielsen, more US smartphone users own an Android device than iPhone. In March 2011, 37% of smartphone users had an Android device compared to 27% who owned an iPhone and 22% who owned a BlackBerry. That’s a major jump in Android device ownership considering only 22.7% of smartphone users owned one last October.
