Latest comScore report shows iOS, Windows Phone and Samsung were the big winners in Q3
Taking it on the chin was BlackBerry, whose market share dropped in the third quarter to 3.8% from 4.4% Android's ownership of the market declined from 52% to 51.8% in the quarter. Symbian was flat with .3% of the U.S. smartphone market.
You can't blame Samsung for Android's tepid showing in the quarter. The Korean OEM tacked on 1.2 percentage points from a 23.7% second quarter smartphone market share in the U.S., to 24.9% in quarter three. That still leaves Apple with the largest market share among manufacturers. The Cupertino based tech titan closed the quarter with a 40.6% share, up from 39.9% last quarter. Despite losing 1.4 percentage points sequentially, HTC's 7.1% reading is good enough for third place. Motorola (6.8%) and LG (6.6%) round out the top five.
