Android Grows While Other Mobile Platforms Stand Still, Decline (Yep, Again)

Stop us if you’ve heard this one.  The latest comScore report is out and it shows gaining while other mobile platforms stand still or decline.  In three month period ending in September, Android rose 6.5 percentage point to account for 21.4 percent of smart phone subscribers.  Google’s OS still trails RIM who commands 37.3 percent and Apple at 24.3 percent share.  Microsoft comes in fourth at 10 percent while Palm picked up the rear with 4.2 percent.

Apple’s share stayed right where it was three months ago while RIM and Microsoft split the brunt of Android’s wrath.  Things will be fun to watch unfold as new Windows Phone 7 devices enter the fray.  Let’s not discount a few new RIM phones this holiday either.

Read the rest of the comScore report, including which handset makers accounted for the growing number of smart phones.
