comScore: 40% of U.S. Smart Phones Run Android

The June comScore MobiLens report has been released today, providing a solid look at mobile industry trends. The report compiles data from more than 30,000 mobile users in the United States and focuses on the three month period ending in June 2011. As you can see from the headline coming in, Android is doing quite well for itself.

According to comScore, Android now powers 40.1 percent of the U.S. smart phone market, up 5.4 percentage points over the previous quarter. Apple, up 1.1 percentage points and now commands a solid second place at 26.6 percent. RIM slid 3.7 percentage points to a 23.4 percent share, however they still have a solid lead over Microsoft (5.8 percent) and Symbian (2.0).

With 78.5 million people in the U.S. now owning smart phones, we’re beginning to see a two-way race emerge. Android and Apple seem to be the only platforms on the rise while others slowly lose ground.
