comScore: U.S. Android Share Tops 40%

  • October 5, 2011
Android maintained a sizable lead over its rivals for the three months ending in August, with a 43.7% share of the U.S. smartphone market, according to new comScore data.

That level represents a 5.6 percentage point gain from the previous three-month period. By contrast, Research in Motion's BlackBerry platform saw its share fall from 24.7% to 19.7% during the summer months. The once leading smartphone player in the U.S. continued to struggle against Google and Apple.

Apple's share increased almost one percentage point to 27.3%, second only to Android. Rounding out the top five were Microsoft's Windows Phone 7, with 5.7% share, roughly flat from May, and Symbian, down 0.3 points to 1.8%. --Mark Walsh
