Research firm comScore just released their most recent numbers on smartphone use in the US, and Android is clearly gaining at the expense of other platforms. As you can see from the chart, Android experienced a solid 5 percent growth during the months between April and July, while all the other platforms declined or remained the same. Windows Mobile saw the steepest drop, at 2.2 percent.
Android is now sitting at 17% of total smartphone subscribers, just slightly behind Apple at 23.8 percent, and a distant 3rd to Apple's 39.3 percent. These numbers go hand in hand with the report from earlier in the month that Android is predicted to have the #2 spot by the end of the year.
