Latest ComScore Released: 45% Of U.S. Smartphones Are Android

Good news out of the Comscore data factory today as their latest numbers show that 45% of the smartphones in the United States run Android.

Android’s 44.8% of the U.S. market share accounts for 88.7 million users. This is compared to Apple’s iOS which holds 27.4% of the market share. Research in Motion dropped from a somewhat respectable 23.5% in the second quarter of 2011 to 18.9%. As PCWorld points out, the latest Canalys numbers show that RIM shipments have dipped below 10% of the U.S. market share.

More after the break

The other big story to come out of today’s ComScore report is that Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system is still only at 5.6% of the market, just about flat from the last report. This includes legacy devices running older versions of the Windows mobile platform and current devices running Windows Phone 7. Even with Nokia’s recent Windows Phone announcements, they have a long uphill battle.

ComScore also released vendor numbers with Samsung taking the cake at 25.3% of the market share. LG is still ahead of Motorola with LG having 20.6% while Motorola is only at 13.8%. Apple is at 10.2%
