Wow. Well you can see why Apple is getting so desperate in their lawsuits, the trend they are seeing is bad bad bad. Over 2/3rds Android, and now it's not both Apple and Android growing at the expense of symbian and blackberry, but apple is losing to Android now too!
Honestly though a huge portion of this is rumors of the new iPhone. Apple always drops Q2 sales because of people waiting to buy the latest and greatest iPhone.

That is still amazing by Samsung and Android though - very impressed.
