Call it valley between two trade shows, but the cell phone world is having a quiet week for a change. As we're three weeks past Mobile World Congress and two weeks to CTIA, cell phone makers must have their heads down planning what's to come. Yet, there was at least one piece of news that brought out the CNET readers in force this week. Indeed, Android fans and detractors were abuzz over a ComScore report that found that Android had grabbed the largest market share in the United States smartphone market in the three months ending January. It's quite the discussion so be sure to check it out. We also reviewed the changes from iOS 4.3, Kent dissed the Motorola Flipout, and Bonnie walked us through new announcements from Samsung. And Jessica said nothing because she is on vacation.
