ComScore Releases Mobile Subscriber Market Share Numbers for March
 
 

comScore has offered up the numbers for March 2011 for the US mobile subscriber market share. According to the numbers for the quarter ending in March 234 million Americans 13 and up used a mobile device. The top maker of devices was Samsung with 24.5% of the market. LG was next at 20.9%.

Motorola was next at 15.8%, then RIM at 8.4%, and Apple at 7.9%. You can bet that Samsung, Motorola, and LG are all pushed by very strong sales of Android smartphones. Of all the makers only Apple grew in market share, all of the other remaining top five slipped.

For the month the top smartphone OS was Android. Blackberry OS with RIM was next, Apple was third, with Microsoft and Palm far behind the others. Android grew a bunch to 34.7% of the market with RIM slipping to 27.1% and Apple right on RIMs heels at 25.5%. My Take: These numbers are irrelevant to most of us. It won't change what anyone is planning to buy based on budget or need to know that Android is more popular than iOS. If Apple had more devices on all carriers, I suspect the market would look vastly different.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
