Overall smartphone shipments in the U.S. have fallen from 25.2 million to 23.8 million units. The blame is mostly on the poor economic climate and changes in the upgrade policies of major carriers.
The only OS which has managed to gain something is iOS. The Apple platform has powered 7.9 million handsets, up from 5.9 million in last Q2. This has led to a 33.2% market share for iOS, up from 23.2%.
The third most popular mobile OS in the U.S. — BlackBerry — continues its way to the bottom, with a market share of only 6.5% - a drastic fall from the 10.5% it commanded during the same period of last year.
