Android Gaining on Top Mobile Platform BlackBerry

Google's Android mobile operating system is gaining market share as its top rivals posted declines in the latest comScore survey. While Research In Motion's BlackBerry remained on top and Apple was number two in the March-May period, Android gained four percent, putting it in fourth place. Samsung was the leading handset manufacturer.

Research In Motion's BlackBerry retained its lead as the top smartphone platform, while Google's Android has registered a significant gain in market share. Those are some of the conclusions from a new survey released Thursday by market researcher comScore.

The survey compared trends in the U.S. mobile-phone industry during the three-month period ending in May, compared to the previous three-month period ending in February. Leading mobile original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and smartphone operating system platforms were assessed among wireless subscribers aged 13 and older.
