ComScore puts Android on top, passing BlackBerry in US market share

• 08/03/2011

It was just three months ago when the ComScore reports showed that Android surpassed Apple iOS and took second place in the race for US market share.  Well, it looks like they’ve done it again and now Android is number one, overtaking RIM.

BlackBerry took a dive in January with a 5.4 percent decline, down to 30.4 percent of the market share.  Couple that with Android’s leap at 7.7 percent, up to 31.2 percent of the market share, it’s probably safe to say that things are looking pretty sweet from the top.

Will Android be safe at the top?  Hard to say since iOS will likely experience another boost during ComScore’s next reporting period (through March) with the Verizon iPhone launch happening.  That might not be the case for BlackBerry though since, as of yet, there’s really been no word on anything spectacularly new on the RIM front.
