According to the latest data from digital market measurement firm comScore, the Verizon iPhone was the most acquired handset in the U.S. in February. Those sales helped Apple maintain its fifth-place position among all U.S. mobile phone manufacturers, with Samsung keeping its lead, followed by LG, Motorola, and RIM. The latter two companies both lost share while Apple gained 0.9 percent on a three month average ending in February, compared to the three month average ending in November. iOS also held its third place position in the smartphone platform market over the same period, gaining 0.2 percent, while second-place BlackBerry lost 4.6 percent share, and Android added another seven percent, giving it 33 percent of the U.S. smartphone market.
