    Default Android share surpasses 50% in the US

    The analysts from comScore have just published their report on the US smartphone market and it tells a rather different story from the one from the Nielsen numbers published last week. According to comScore Android has not only passed the 50% market share mark already, but it's also still the biggest gainer in the smartphone race.

    According to the new report, the Google OS powers 50.1% of all smartphones in the US, with iOS running on 30.2% of them. That's a ways off the 48% vs 32% breakdown that Nielsen reported, and we're frankly not sure who to believe here.

    And things get even more confusing when you look at the recent acquirers numbers. Nielsen said that iOS has almost caught up with Android over the past three months (getting a 43% share to the 48% of the green droids), while comScore now says that the Google OS is the fastest growing platform gaining 3.2 percent points in the past three months alone. Apple's iOS on the other hand has a reported growth of 1.5 percent points.

    One thing the two tech analysis companies are unanimous in is their claims that RIM's BlackBerry and the Microsoft's Windows Phone platforms are doing pretty badly (although again there're some differences in the exact numbers quoted), losing market share with each passing month. If they don't pick up their game soon, the smartphone race might soon turn into a dual.

    According to ComScore, Android passed 50% market share in the U.S. for the first time in February, gaining about 3 points since November.

    But the top three Android vendors were flat or down: Samsung stayed flat at 25.6%, LG lost about a point to come in at 19.4%, and Motorola (which is being bought by Google) also lost about a point to come in at 12.8%.
