The latest quarterly data from ComScore is in for the US smartphone market, and Android is still top dog with 50.9-percent of the market, up 0.8-percent. Apple has grown 1.7-percent to take 31.9-percent of the pie, Research in Motion has dropped 2 points to 11.4-percent, Microsoft is up a tenth of a point to 4-percent, and Symbian continues to fade, dropping 0.4-percent to 1.1-percent.


Who's the leading phone maker in the US? Samsung. Samsung take 25.7-percent of the market, gaining 0.1-percent this quarter. LG slipped 0.3 points to 19.1-percent, while iPhone maker Apple takes just 15-percent. Motorola is down 0.8 points to 12-percent, in fifth place sits HTC with 6.1-percent of the market, up 0.2 points this quarter.

With the current legal battles between Apple, Samsung and now Samsung's ally, Google, things should get more interesting with these numbers over the coming months.
