The latest comScore numbers are out and Samsung and Android continue to lead the pack. According to the three month average period ending December 2011, Samsung has held on as the top OEM with 25.3 percent of U.S. mobile subscribers. LG and Motorola took the number 2 and 3 spots, and even though Apple was in fourth, they were the only OEM to gain market share (up 2.2 points). As far as operating systems go, Google and Apple continue to be the only two gaining any ground.
As you can see in the above table, Android continues to hold the top OS spot with 47.3 percent market share, up 2.5 percentage points from September. Apple holds strong at number 2 with 29.6 percent of the smartphone market, up 2.2 percentage points, while the rest of the system platforms continue to decline.
At this point, there’s really nothing new to see. Android and Apple continue to dominate the market while Samsung continues to sell lots of phones. I can’t help but wonder if anyone will come along to shake up this Google/Apple party that’s going on in the mobile market. So far no one seems to be able to gain any ground on the two, not even Microsoft.
Well, there you have it. Anyone want to guess what the next comScore numbers will reveal?
