by Developer.com Staff

Blackberry slips as Android takes over the number one spot for top selling mobile OS.

For the first time since 2007, Blackberry isn't the number one selling smartphone operating system - Android is.

Mashable's Adam Ostrow reported today that NPD Group has ranked Google's Android as the number one top selling mobile OS for the second quarter of 2010.

"NPD has the race at Android – 33 percent, RIM – 28 percent, and Apple – 22 percent for the period, noting that it's the first time since Q4 2007 that the BlackBerry maker hasn't been number one," Ostrow said. "RIM is pinning much of its hopes on getting back on top with its new BlackBerry 6 operating system and the BlackBerry Torch smartphone, the latter of which was revealed yesterday."
