Android Gains Market Share While All Others Lose It

Over the last three months, all of the major mobile platforms lost share to Google Android.  Although still in fourth place, Android increased by four percentage points from February to May, whereas Android’s number one competitor, Apple decreased one point.  (Although, it should be noted that this information was gathered prior to the iPhone 4 release.)

According to ComScore, over 49 million people in the US own smartphones, which is up 8.1% from three months prior.  Check out paidcontent.org to get the full story.

Now with the iPhone 4 out, and FroYo getting sent out on a more regular basis, it should be interesting to see how the numbers look in the next few months.  What are your thoughts and predictions for the months ahead?  Do you think that Microsoft is going to continue to drop fast? (Having lost the most points from the previous period.)  Did adding AppWorld help RIM lose less market share?  Let us know what you think!
