Wrong, as others have pointed out, And even DroidLife has confirmed that the numbers where a big blown out of context numbers lie.
FACT: Android has only 9% Apple 28% of market Share.

After some new numbers from Nielsen (you know, the marketing guys who monitor cable and radio ratings), that wave has come crashing down. As illustrated by the graph below, Android only holds a 9% market share in US smartphones; though it has grown 2% in the last quarter, it still remains fourth overall. RIM’s Blackberry holds a 35% share (down 2%), while the iPhone comes in a close second with 28%. Even the much-maligned Windows Mobile platform holds a 10% lead on Android.
Things won’t be getting any better, either: RIM is releasing a new version of their Blackberry OS in the coming months, keeping the platform attractive to the massive corporate market that it caters to. Windows Phone 7 remains on the horizon, and Apple will be launching their newest iPhone hardware this week. Coupled with iPhone OS 4.0, this new tech will take away much of fanboys’ ammunition: the iPhone will finally be able to run multiple applications at once, store icons in folders and customize aspects of its look
So understand, It was a Numbers game released by a Android Supported Firm & not independent like the Real Nielsen Numbers have shown, And now even though all the press was Android outsells iPhone truth now shows it was all FUD, and even Android sites Now have reported the true numbers.
But it seems the Numbers that are not true still come up as truth but its all FUD. Number don't lie Android has only 9% Apple 28% of market Share.
Android Has a Very Long way to go to even catch up with the iPhone in sales and user base. FACT
