Previously in the world of smartphones, we covered the top vendor statistics and now ComScore is out with a new report this week regarding US smartphone platform marketshare for the March quarter.
The highly-regarded marketing research firm provides an interesting yet unsurprising results, as Google remains at the top with their Android OS, iOS grabs the second place, RIM at third and Microsoft at fourth.
According to comScore’s MobiLens service, Android currently owns 51.0% of the U.S. smartphone market, up from 47.3% in the December quarter. While iOS is at the second place, it’s way behind Android as it grabs the market share of 30.7.
Android and iOS both had minor improvements in their numbers in the quarter, whereas RIM and Microsoft both suffered negative points in this quarter. With the constant rise of Android and iOS, both RIM and Microsoft users are diverting at an exponential rate towards the previously mentioned OS giants.
Thanks to various vendors shaping up Android, the Google’s OS is picking up pace faster than iOS. With various different tastes of Android OS (courtesy of Samsung, HTC etc), Apple needs to release a ground breaking product that can satisfy all of its users tastes or it might be on the verge of its fall.
