Latest comScore Report Sounds Like A Broken Record: Samsung And Android Remain On Top
comScore remains a leading source for measuring key mobile trends, and their latest report is giving me a sense of deja vu. If we look at the results from the three month period ending November 2011, it’s safe to say that not much has changed. Samsung still remains the top OEM with 25.6 percent of U.S. mobile subscribers (up 0.3 percentage points), followed by LG with 20.5 percent. RIM finished last out of the top 5 with a 6.5 percent share (down 0.6). As for mobile OS platforms, I bet you can guess who’s leading.
Android continues to gain market share and is holding strong in the number 1 position with 46.9 percent (up 3.1 percentage points). Apple remains second, and is the only other OS to gain market share with 28.7 (up 1.4). All other mobile platforms continued to drop, with RIM losing the most (3.1%). Again, no big surprises here. comScore goes on to remind us that texting is running rampant with 72.6 percent of U.S. mobile subscribers using their thumbs to communicate. When not texting, 44.9% of users play with a downloaded app, and 44.4% hang ten on the web.
I’m going to go ahead and predict comScore’s next report: Samsung and Android Still on top! Good times, good times indeed.
