The market is hot, and Microsoft just officially made it into the smartphone market charts with a one percent marketshare. Android is just under 50 percent, with the iPhone taking 19 percent, and Blackberry, Symbian and WebOS rounding things out.

With the next-generation iPhone anticipated in Q3, it's likely that Apple's position will grow even stronger in the second half of the year."
