Android market share hits 47 percent in US

Written by Fudzilla staff



Apple also up, RIM slips


According to the latest ComScore smartphone market share figures, Google’s Android is still going strong in the US.

Between August and November, Google’s share jumped 3.1 percent, from 43.8 to 46.8 percent. Apple came in strong second, boosting its share by 1.4 percent, from 27.3 to 28.7 percent.

Both Google and Apple seem to have gained market share at RIM’s expense. The Blackberry maker shed 3.1 points and ended up with a 16.6 percent share. Symbian is also down 0.3 percent, which is hardly surprising as Nokia has already pulled the plug on it.

Microsoft’s share also dropped 0.5 percent, from 5.7 to 5.2 percent. It is unclear whether ComScore included the old Microsoft Mobile OS in the figures, since that would explain the drop.

Is that for smartphones only or does it include 3G enabled tablets like the Kindle Fire?

I think this is only for the smart phone market and not tablets. What Microsoft needs to do IMO is either do a joint venture with RIM or buy them out completely. Together they can better compete. The last thing we need is RIM to go belly up. There BB Playbook is awesome and sold very well this Christmas Season. Personally iPad 1 & 2 stink, though the iPhone's are well designed, though the same can be said for the Blackberry which I happily continue to use and only plan on another BB upgrade when newer versions get released.

This is what linux can do when a monopoly is not in it's way playing dirty.The open nature of Android is what is killing them, OSI included.If a company wants to win against Android they are going to have to essentially be open also, and if they are going to do that, then they might as well use Android.Blackberry might be the first major player to fall in the new year.
