A new report from comScore recently suggested that both Google and iOS are continuing to gain traction in the United States. Google’s Android mobile operating system market share increased 1.4 percentage points in the three-month period ended in July to a 52.2%, while Apple’s iOS market share increased 2.0 percentage points to 33.4% share. Microsoft, RIM’s BlackBerry OS and Symbian’s market share continued to decline; each fell 0.4, 2.1 and 0.5 percentage points, respectively.
