The newest comScore data should have Google, Samsung and LG (?) fans happy. According to the latest marketing numbers from the company, Google's Android still leads in the following category: Top Smartphone Platforms 3; Month Avg. Ending Jul. 2012 vs. 3 Month Avg. Ending Apr. 2012; Total U.S. Smartphone Subscribers Ages 13+. Android took up 52.2% of the market, which was an increase of 1.4%. Apple's iOS came in second with 33.4%, which was an increase of 2%. These numbers came at the expense of RIM, Microsoft and Symbian.
The most interesting thing about the study was the OEM numbers for the following category: Top Mobile OEMs 3; Month Avg. Ending Jul. 2012 vs. 3 Month Avg. Ending Apr. 2012; Total U.S. Mobile Subscribers (Smartphone & Non-Smartphone) Ages 13+. Samsung took first place (unsurprisingly) with 25.6%, which was a tiny decline of -0.3%. What was surprising is that LG is still in second place and Apple is still in third. LG held 18.4%, which was a decline of -0.8%, and Apple showed 16.3%, which was an increase of 1.9%. This dip was at the expense of Motorola which dropped -1.3% to an 11.2% marketshare.
Wow, even though they gained a few points, that's gotta sting for Apple to be second fiddle to LG. I wonder why they haven't sued them yet? For more info, hit the source link below.
