The kings of all metrics in the digital world, comScore, has published an interesting read ahead of this weekend – data from the comScore MobiLens service, which, as we know, reports key trends in the US mobile phone industry.

During the three month average period ending June 2011, the study – derived from a survey of more than 30,000 US mobile subscribers – shows that Samsung remains the top handset manufacturer overall with 25.3% market share.

Perhaps the real story within the data is how Google Android continues to gain ground in the smartphone market even with Apple breathing down its neck to a substantial degree.

For the three-month reporting period in question, Android reached a 40.1% smartphone platform market share in June (up more than 5% since the last report).

Apple did, however, strengthen its second-place position with 26.6% of the smartphone market, up 1.1% from the prior reporting period.

RIM finished third with 23.4% share, followed by Microsoft (5.8%) and Symbian (2.0%).

    In a Roger McNamee speach I heard recently, there was a key insight that the number of searches done from a smart phone is substantially lower than that of a desktop. If google's goal with Android was to keep its share of search in mobile, then it clearly is not working. So what do they get in return for giving Android for Free?
