Smartphone OS trends

According to comScore's February 2010 report (comScore Reports February 2010 U.S. Mobile Subscriber Market Share), between November 2009 until February 2010, Google's Android jumped from 3.8% to 9.0% while Microsoft's Windows Mobile dropped from 19.1% to 15.1%. RIM's BlackBerry increased from 40.8% to 42.1%. Meanwhile, Apple's iPhone remained fairly flat at 25.5% to 25.4%. Palm dropped from 7.2% to 5.4%.

So, as we all anticipated, Google's Android OS has leaped to 4th place, and my prediction is that in the next 3 months, we'll see Android jump to 3rd place. By the end of 2010, it could be up there converting BlackBerry and iPhone users. I'm sorry Palm, but it looks like we're going to have to see you go. Let's see what happens when Microsoft rolls out Windows Phone 7 Series.
