Apple held 24.4% of U.S. smartphone market March - May

According to the latest data from comScore, Apple accounted for 24.4% of the U.S. smartphone market for the three months ending in May. RIM was once again the market leader with a 41.7% share of the market; Apple was second, followed by Microsoft with 13.2%, Google’s Android with 13%, and Palm with 4.8%. Apple’s percentage, which is based on smartphone subscribers and is taken as an average from the three month period, is down slightly from the 25.4% share the company held in the three months ending in February 2010, but does not account for any sales of the iPhone 4, while likely including some sales that were delayed or lost as details of the new handset leaked prior to its official unveiling.

So blackberry continues to bleed (but still leads), apple loses slightly (not statistically significant, and also not taking into account the new version), but Droid made an impressive move up from 9% to 13%. Still in third, but continues to grow (and with new handsets coming out this year, the trend is likely to continue).

Competition is good, so let’s hope this sparks continued improvements in the phone wars!
