Android smartphones claims even bigger slice of the US Market

Google seems to be going from strength to strength recently. Not only has the search giant just primed its big social networking assault on Facebook, Google+, it’s also expanding its US smartphone market share with some strong industry figures singing Android’s praises.

According to new figures, Android’s smartphone market share gre 5 per cent between February and May, expanding from an already-winning 33 per cent, to an even larger 38.1.

In joint second place second place is Apple and BlackBerry makers RIM, who both command around a quarter of the market share each. That said, RIM’s tally has dropped by around 4 per cent, while Apple’s has grown by 1.4. Microsoft has also lost a slither of its foothold, with 1.9 per cent of its market share dissintegrating over the same period of time.

Is this pattern set to change at all, or can one of the other manufacturers and operating systems topple Android? Let us know on the Gadget Helpline Twitter feed.
