We know that Android and iOS dominate the market right now, but just how much of the US smartphone market have they consumed in the last three months? Well, since May, Android has gone from 50.1% marketshare, to 52.6%, enjoying over half of the US smartphone market.

iOS has also done well, going from 31.9% in May to 34.3% in August. Apple's numbers are interesting, as this was all pre-iPhone 5, meaning that we should see somewhat of a jump for the iOS numbers in another couple of months.

 

Microsoft, Research in Motion (RIM) and Symbian are all bleeding out right now, losing customers everywhere. Microsoft dropped from 4.0% to 3.6% of the US smartphone share, RIM went from 11.4% to 8.3%, representing a huge drop in users, and Symbian, the little engine that could, dropped from 1.1% to just 0.7%.
