ComScore: Android Continues Gains, RIM Tanking

Today comScore released its latest mobile market share figures. Once again the smartphone story is the same: Android showed strong quarterly growth while the iPhone saw modest growth and all others saw declines, especially RIM.

Among handset OEMs (all mobile devices), Samsung leads the pack with 25 percent of the US market. Motorola, which Google is seeking to acquire for $12.5 billion, saw a modest decline. If one looks only at smartphone share these figures look different.

In April of this year, according to NPD Group, the following were the top-selling smartphones in the US:

  1. Apple iPhone 4
  2. Apple iPhone 3GS
  3. HTC EVO 4G
  4. HTC Inspire 4G
  5. Samsung INTENSITYII

More recently NPD released data on the top-selling Android handsets in the US (Q2):

  1. Motorola Droid
  2. HTC Droid Incredible
  3. HTC EVO 4G
  4. HTC Hero
  5. HTC Droid Eris
