iPhone was best-selling Smartphone in United States last Quarter

Samsung is the global mobile phone market leader, but Apple reigns the United States smartphone market with over 30% marketshare according to NPD Group.

Apple and Samsung enjoyed a huge rise in unit sales, while other brands suffered. Apple is likely to extend that market share in Q3 with the launch of the iPhone 5.

“By concentrating on their best, flagship devices, while at the same time supplementing their volumes with lower priced alternatives, both Apple and Samsung are extending their lead over the other smartphone makers,” said Stephen Baker, vice president of industry analysis at The NPD Group. “To be a share leader means participating in all segments of the market, in order to take advantage of pre-paid and other growth opportunities, while also providing the hero devices that drive customers to your brand.”

According to NPD, the top five smartphone brands, and their market shares, in Q2 were as follows:

1. Apple: 31 percent

2. Samsung: 24 percent

3. HTC: 15 percent

4. Motorola: 12 percent

5. LG: 6 percent

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.
