comScore has released their latest figures on the U.S. mobile market, showing that the iPhone 4S significantly increased Apple’s share of the smartphone market from 28.1 percent in October to 28.7 percent in November, although Google continues to lead with 47%.
The report also shows that Android is still gaining market share, although its growth is slowing down significantly, and is not cutting into Apple’s growth. Blackberry and Windows Phone, on the other hand, continue to drop in share as Android and iOS gain.
Meanwhile, in the mobile phone market as a whole, Apple has now exceeded 10% share, increasing from 9.8 percent in August to 11.2 percent in November, while Samsung continues to gain, reaching 25.6 percent.
The true effect of the iPhone 4S remains to be seen, however, as December sales for both Android and iOs devices hit all time highs around Christmas day, which could significantly affect their market standings.
