Google Android

It's not all doom and gloom in the Android world. Comscore just released its findings for the three months ending in May, and they are as follows:

  • Samsung's is the top overall mobile manufacturer at 25.7 percent. LG's second at 19.1 percent. That's counting smartphones and non-smartphones, however. Apple's third at 15 percent (the largest gainer with a 1.5 percentage point increase over February), followed by Motorola (which has more than a few non-smartphones) at 12 percent, and HTC at 6.1 percent.
  • Google's still well in the lead for total smartphone subscribers, at 50.9 percent. Apple's second at 31.9 percent, and it again was the highest gainer at 1.7 percentage points. (Android grew about half that.) BlackBerry fell 2 percentage points to 11.4 percent, and Microsoft's Windows Phone showed just 0.1 percentage points of growth, to 4 percent even.

We'll be looking for Android's numbers to take a pretty big bump maybe not in the June findings, but certainly July, as the Galaxy S III is finally hitting stores.
