On Tuesday, comScore released released the latest data from its comScore MobiLens service, reporting key trends in the U.S. mobile phone industry during the three month average period ending November 2011.

For the three-month average period ending in November, 234 million Americans age 13 and older used mobile devices.

Incredibly, a record 91.4 million people in the U.S. owned smartphones during that that timeframe, up 8 percent from the preceding three month period.

As always, the study surveyed more than 30,000 U.S. mobile subscribers.

Samsung continues to be the top handset manufacturer overall with 25.6 percent market share.

But Android devices once again steal the show, as they make up 46.9 percent of all smartphones across the United States.

Android saw a 3.1 percent increase in its market share since August 2011.

Interestingly enough, Apple’s iOS was the only other mobile platform to experience growth during the period, climbing 1.4 percentage points over August to secure 28.7 percent of the national smartphone segment.
