comScore: Android still on top of US smartphone market

The latest comScore survey results show that Android is still the most used mobile operating system in the US today, followed by Apple's iOS and RIM's BlackBerry in somewhat distant second and third positions based on overall marketshare. Android has been found to hold 51.6% of the US smartphone market, which is up 0.6% from Q1 2012. RIM's BlackBerry, along with Microsoft's Windows Phone and the Symbian OS, all experienced a dip in overall marketshare. Apple's iOS has apparently seen the biggest gains during the last 3-month survey period, going up 1.7% from 30.7% in Q1 2012 to 32.4% in Q2 2012.

What Else You Need To Know:

- These survey results are based on a subscriber base of 110 million smartphone users in the US.

- The Symbian OS now holds less than 1% of the US smartphone market.

- Microsoft's Windows Phone seems to be on a downward trajectory that probably won't change until the arrival of Windows Phone 8.
