Newest comScore Reports Shows Android, Apple Continuing Smartphone Dominance

We knew this was coming as the March smartphone market totals are now in and you’ll only need one guess for who continues to reign number one in the US market. Android its dominance jumping almost four full points to 51% of new American smartphone buyers. Apple’s still riding high as well jumping to 30.7% giving the two top platforms close to 80% marketshare. Microsoft and RIM took their own hits dropping to 3.9% and 12.3% respectively. That’s a drop of 3.7% for RIM and 0.8% for Microsoft. The US wireless market looks more and more like a two horse race.

Including these March totals, the American smartphone market now stands at 106 million smartphone owners, a full nine points higher than last December. Samsung and Apple are the only companies making moves these days as Samsung grabbed 26% of the market against Apple’s 14%. HTC, Motorola and LG continue to lose marketshare to Samsung, though HTC has high hopes on their “One” line as LG refocuses the company’s hopes on Android. Microsoft and RIM are going to need a lot more than luck to stage their comeback.

    Slow news day today. I wish some sort of surprise announcement would happen already. I am starting to get bored…..

    • Well I know you know that not every day can be a “busy news day.”

      • TMOTECH

        It wasn’t to disparage you David. Like I said in the past, I get news about my own company from you before I get it from them. I just wish “they” would announce something exciting soon. Something that would get people buzzing about T-Mobile. The haters are starting to get me down.

        • You and me both, people just love to hate! I wish every day was busy busy busy with exciting news, alas that just isn’t the case.

    Blackberry could get me back if they had:  1. a screen I could read.  2. a browser that worked

  • Loopylogic

    Well, good luck RIM. I hope BB10 will help your shares grow…though I doubt it will happen overnight. 

  • BeeMan

    I tend to wonder if the analysts who were making claims about Android dying off are reading this new marketshare data.

    • zeth006

      Not just them. Not many people in general saw Android coming. I had people as early as early 2009 saying I was crazy in predicting it would surpass Apple in market share.
