Since comScore’s last report on platform market share, not a whole lot has changed. The top two mobile operating systems in the US continue to lead by a wide margin, and have only gained small ground at the expense of RIM, Microsoft, and Symbian. Android continues to hold its top position, claiming stake to over 52.6 percent of all smartphone subscribers. The number is a marginal increase 1.7 percentage points from May.
Apple saw the most growth, but it still amounted to an increase of only 2.4 points to reach 34.4 percent penetration. Surprisingly (or maybe not), the Windows Phone OS that many experts predict to come on as a viable contender over the next couple of years actually saw a decrease in market share, dropping to 3.6 percent. RIM continues its downward trend towards irrelevancy. Check out the full report at the link below.
