Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android now account for over 80 percent of the U.S. smartphone market, according to the latest data from comScore. While Android continues to lead iOS with a 50.1 percent share of the market, iOS has seen continued growth, accounting for 30.2 percent of the market in February—up from 28.7 percent in November 2011, and up five percentage points from a year ago. iOS’ and Android’s growth has come at the expense of RIM’s BlackBerry, which now accounts for just 13.4 percent of the market, and Microsoft’s Windows Phone, which accounts for 3.9 percent of the market; those numbers represent three-month declines of 3.2 percent and 1.3 percent, respectively. ComScore’s data data is derived from an intelligent online survey of a nationally representative sample of mobile subscribers age 13 and older.
