Apple iPhone loses Market Share in US according to comScore
 
 

Statistics about market share are always taken with a grain of salt, but comScore has released an interesting report yesterday that should be pretty solid. comScore reports key trends in the U.S. mobile phone industry during the three month average period ending July 2010 compared to the preceding three-month average. The report finds Samsung to be the top handset manufacturer overall with 23.1% market share followed by LG and Motorola.

In terms of smartphone platform market share RIM is in the lead with 39.3% followed by Apple iOS and Google Android. The interesting observation is that Apple lost 1.3% marketshare and Android gained 5% compared to the previous 3 months. RIM also lost 1.8% and Microsoft lost another 2.2%.

Android is growing rapidly, but I would not have thought that Apple's share is not growing with the release of iPhone 4. Are consumers waiting for the ominous white iPhone 4 with antenna fix?

Update:
Fortune has some interesting interpretations of the comScore numbers. When considering that the new iPhone was launched end of June and was then sold out and hard to find the iPhone 4 impact in the comScore data is not very high. Additionally the overall smartphone market grew in the US. If we look at the data again in October the iPhone marketshare should be actually growing.
