According to research firm comScore. the percentage of smartphone equipped Americans using the Apple iPhone during the 3 month period ending in September rose 1.3% to reach 10.2% of the U.S. market; that is the first time in history that the device had a better than 10% share of smartphone users in the States...

LG has 20.6% of the smartphone market in the U.S.?? That cannot be correct...

The mid-range Optimus S line-up which has been released to pretty much every single carrier adds up.

Yeah, the graph measures Smartphone and Non-smartphone growth. If the editors had actually bothered reading the chart I'm sure this article would never have even been written... Also, if it did measure just smartphones HTC would definitely be on there.

It's been changed from "smartphone" to "handset" now, which is much more believable.

Yea seems like the writer doesn't understand the article he's writing about. He says majority of people don't browse the web. Well majority of people don't have smartphones.

Comscore also understated the amount of people who visit yahoo by a billion.

Misleading title. The chart shows growth/loss in both "Smartphone & Non-smartphone." Samsung's 0.0 growth doesn't necessarily mean its smartphone market hasn't grown, it could (and probably does) mean that its feature phone market has decline while its smart phone market has increased. I advise the writer to read the parameters of the chart first, as Alan F. also writes that Samsung controls 25.2% of the "smartphone market" which isn't true at all.

Apple continues to amaze. They had growth with a phone over 1 yr old. Gallito get ready for an explosion with the best iPhone yet. Siri will become a household name and Apple's market share will go up.

Lolololol.. you remind me of a schoolgirl who has a crush on someone who will never notice them. Keep saving your money Taco so that way when you ACTUALLY get an iphone 4s you can just cuddle with it all night..

The iphone's figures would even be more amazing in Q4 with the ip4S.
