ComScore offers up a plethora of metrics that will tell you what is going on in just about any market in the tech world. The latest figures from the company for the mobile phone market have been offered and Android has continued its stellar growth.
Most of that growth has come to the detriment of RIM’s Blackberry smartphones. For the quarter ending in September RIM was the leading smartphone in the US at 37.3% of the market. However, that market share dropped 2.8% from the previous quarter. At the same time, Android grew 6.5% in the same period to grab 21.4% of the overall smartphone market in the US.
The iPhone staid the same for the recent quarter compared to the previous with 24.3% of the market. Samsung was the top phone maker in the country followed by LG and Motorola. Many of those companies are helped by robust Android catalogs.
