Google surely must be content with the performance of its Android operating system as the most recent numbers point to some truly impressive numbers. It took almost a year to see Android go from a relatively small player in the mobile world looking to get the respect it deserves to the almost unstoppable force that's steam rolling the competition out of the road. Industry research firm comScore shed some light in the performance of all the major mobile phone platforms out there – comparing how each one managed to affect the market in the last 3 months. Android saw the highest spikes in increased market share as it catapulted from 2.8 percent to 7.1

When looking at some of the heavy hitters in the arena, Apple managed to go from 24.8 percent to 25.1 percent while RIM also saw a moderate increase from 41.3 percent to 43 percent. On the other end of the spectrum, Microsoft and Palm are really hurting in the US market as the Redmond based company saw a drop from 19.7 percent to 15.7 percent with Palm looking a bit more grim from 7.8 percent to 5.7 percent.
