comScore: Android Up 5.2% Over Previous Quarter

It’s the start of a new month which means it’s time for more surveys, reports, and findings to start rolling in.  Among the first this month comes the comScore MobiLens report which looks at the US mobile scene.  Their findings indicate that Android has grown 5.2 percentage points over the previous quarter and now command a 36.4 percent market share.  Apple comes in second at 26.0 percent, up ever so slightly with a 1.2 percent gain.

So if two are up, then surely someone must be down, right?  Yes, in fact, there are three players losing market share over the last three months. RIM suffers the most here, down 4.7 percent quarter over quarter, and now have 25.7 percent  of the pie. Microsoft comes in fourth with 6.7 percent share, down 1.3 percent and Palm (WebOS) is down .6 percent and has a lowly 2.6 percent market share.

Hit the press release to see which OEMS are faring the best in the US and to find out how people are using their smart phones.  Are you a typical user?

    Interesting data. What I find even more interesting is the relative change in percent. Here are the numbers:

    Google: +16.7%
    Apple: +5.3%
    RIM: -15.5%
    MS: -16.3%
    Palm: -18.8%

    Interesting to see that MS is actually loosing its market share faster than RIM, only trumped by Palm’s market share free-fall.
