Android losing ground to iOS for second consecutive period in the US, says comScore
ComScore's latest market share results are out, and it seems that Android has kept losing ground to Apple in the US. 

This trend was seen last time they checked, too, with Apple's share growing 2% to 36.3% from 34.3% for the three months ended in September, while Android's rose over the same time from 52.5% to 53.4%.

Now comScore reports Apple is at 38.9% already, for the sake of Android, which went from 53.7% to 51.7%, but is still the commanding mobile OS platform in the US.

Of course, the flagship phones from Sony, HTC, Samsung and LG are just starting to roll out this season, so the little green robot is sure to widen the margin until Apple releases its sixth iPhone generation in the summer.
