comScore released the results for US mobile market share ended April 2011. The results are interesting, and more bad news for RIM, maker of the BlackBerry.
They surveyed more than 30,000 mobile subscribers in the US and found that Samsung is the top handset manufacturer in the US. They have nearly 25 percent market share. Apple has grown since January, and their smartphone hardware makes up 8.3 percent of the US market. RIM is just below them with 8.2 percent. Which isn't much, but shows that the once popular brand continues to decline in use. (View above chart)
As for platforms, Google is on top with 36.4 percent of the smartphone market. Apple is at 26 percent. RIM is at 25.7 percent with Microsoft and Palm at 6.7 and 2.6 percent respectively (below).
We will say one thing. These are survey results of 3,000 people. Those 3,000 may or may not be an accurate representation of the overall smartphone market, so take it as you will.
