Android continues to pick up market share in the U.S.
The latest figures from comScore have been released and based on the three month average ending in May, Android now has a 13% share of the U.S smartphone market, up from a 9% reading at the end of February. The top platform in the nation for smartphones belongs to RIM with a slightly lower 41.7% piece of the pie. After RIM's BlackBerry OS comes Apple. The latter company saw a 1% drop in its smartphone marketshare, followed by Android. Microsoft's Windows Mobile is next and nearly dropped 2% from the February average to its current reading of 13.2%. After Windows comes webOS with a 4.8% slice of the U.S. smartphone platform.

There has been changes in the top 5 U.S. smartphone manufacturers for the period ending in May. With a 22.4% market share, Samsung has jumped from 3rd to number one. LG remains second with 21.7% of the U.S. market and Motorola has dropped from being the leader to number 3 with a 21.2% slice of the smartphone pie. RIM and Nokia swapped positions from the February results with the latter company number 5 and the former number 4 in the new survey. What do most Americans do on their smartphone? Number one with a large lead over everything else is sending text messages to another phone.

An article that shows android is doing well. F apple? What's wrong with all the losers on this site that constantly have to prove to themselves that android is better? If it is why do you need to try to prove it all the time?

Like I said FANBOY ummm im mean taco50 sorry misread your screen name , but the reason other phone fans need to prove themselves is because we want to show that our phones are more then just a brand it actually has the functionallity your "awesome" phones does whithout as many hassels and ways a certain company goes around trying to bleed their customers out of every penny you have by having to pay for just about everything you need for the phones other then music oh, wait you have to pay for that too you know what I'm sorry for being sooooooooooo misguided to want to get a phone made by a company that it's only goal is to sell phones no matter how well or how bad it does. considering you precious i phone has had less signal strength since day one of the first Iphone, so you're telling me that this phone is so great why can't they hire smarter people to who can do better math so they stop lying to their customers The IPHONE IS THE BIGGEST JOKE ON THE MOBILE MARKET HAVING TO PUT NEW SOFTWARE THIS AND THAT ON IT EVERY COUPLE OF MONTHS MEANING THE PHONE WAS RELEASED TOO EARLY BECAUSE DUMMIES LIKE YOU WILL BY IT EVEN IF IT WOULDN'T TURN ON YOU WOULD SAY TO YOURSELF" HUH, MY PHONE DOESN'T TURN ON, IT'S OK APPLE WILL PUT OUT A SOFTWARE UPDATES NEXT MONTH TO ALLOW ME TO DO THAT WHAT A JOKE APPLE IS FOR LEADING BRAND DRIVEN IDIOTS TO A PHONE THAT IS SLOWLY LOOSING IT'S GRIP ON THE MARKET IT'S CALL FORESHADOWING OF THINGS TO COME , NOW CLING TO YOUR IPHONE TACO50 UMMMMMM I MEAN FANBOY CLING TIGHT TO THAT NOW DINOSAUR OF A PHONE YOU HAVE IN YOUR HAND like i said have no problem with the phone personally but it is slowly slipping away due to newer technology and eventually apple won't be able to kepp up beacuse of their close-mindedness
