Android Has Nearly 54 Percent Mobile Market Share — comScore
Earlier today comScore released November mobile market share numbers for the US. Android and iOS continued their gains, with Android picking up some momentum over Apple. Some version of the Android OS is now installed on 53.7 percent of US smartphones.
Meanwhile the other smartphone operating systems continued their long slow declines, including Microsoft’s. ComScore’s data suggest no traction for Windows Phones in the US, although there is some evidence of adoption in Europe and elsewhere.
The leading handset maker in the US is Samsung, followed by Apple. All others, including Google-owned Motorola, lost share.
ComScore says that 53 percent of US adult mobile subscribers now have smartphones. Nielsen’s number is closer to 58 percent.
