US-Based Android shares slowing down, and near-even with iPhone
While Android is still growing, the fall showed a slight decline according to comScore data. It only climbed 2.1 percent over the past month, which is still growth, but not as much as before. Apple managed to hold off Google for the month as it was the only other phone platform maker to gain share. It moved up 0.8 percent to get 24.6 percent of the American market and keep its second-place position. Continued strong iPhone 4 demand matched with better supply may have played the largest role. The guys over at RIM (Blackberry) continued to decline, and Samsung still showed a lead at 24.2%.
