“Back in June, the launch of the iPhone 4 temporarily slowed the meteoric rise of the Google Android operating system. But our latest survey shows the Android OS is once again making major advances in the smartphone market,” ChangeWave VP of research Paul Carton said.

BlackBerry OS was on the wishlist of 6% of the respondents, up a little from 5% in June in the wake of the launch of BlackBerry Torch.
