ComScore: iPhone market share rises, Android still in front
Android is losing market share to iOS in the US smartphone market, according to the most recent <em>ComScore</em> <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282694==http://www.comscore.com/Insights/Press_Releases/2013/4/comScore_Reports_February_2013_U.S._Smartphone_Sub scriber_Market_Share" rel='nofollow'>results</a>. In a three-month period ending in February, Android went from 53.7 percent of the market to 51.7 percent, a drop of 2 percent, while iOS gained 3.9 percent from the 35-percent share in the previous 3 months, hitting 38.9 percent. <br />
<br />
BlackBerry also lost ground, moving from 7.3 percent to 5.4 percent. Windows Phone had a minor increase of 0.2 percent to settle at 3.2 percent, while Symbian remained static at 0.5 percent. <br />
<br />
In terms of smartphones used, Apple increased its lead to 38.9 percent from 35-percent, while Samsung also had a positive 1-percent change to 21.3 percent of the market. HTC dropped from 11 percent to 9.3 percent, Motorola sank by 1.1 percent to 8.4 percent, and LG had a minor downward change from 7 percent to a 6.8-percent share. Both HTC and Samsung may find a change in fortune by the next report, thanks to the impending release of the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282695==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/03/30/high.capacity.htc.one.to.be.att.exclusive/" rel='nofollow'>HTC One</a> and <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282696==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/04/03/price.relates.to.32gb.s4.16gb.version.cheaper.by.5 0/" rel='nofollow'>Samsung Galaxy S4</a> in the region. <br />
<br />
It is also reported that 133.7 million people in the US own smartphones, which itself is an 8-percent rise from the three-month period ending in November.
