Verizon iPhone Most Popular Cell Phone in Feb., but Android Still Surges: comScore
Despite that, however, the report showed that Android's market share surge was unabated, as its market share rose 7 percent to 33 percent or one-third of the U.S. smartphone market. Meanwhile, Apple's share rose slightly, to 25.2 percent. It was 25.0 percent in November.
Android continued to take share out of all the other platforms. RIM was hurt the most; it saw its share drop 4.6 percent, falling below 30 percent for the first time, to 28.9 percent. Windows Phone 7 did not forestall Microsoft's declining fortunes, as its market share dropped from 9 percent to 7.7 percent. HP dropped from 3.9 percent to 2.8 percent.
As opposed to platforms, when one looks at mobile OEMs, since Android is split across many OEMs, there's little way for a single Android manufacturer to stem the tide of the iPhone and Apple in overall cell phone manufacturing share.
