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.
