comScore Reports Bleak BlackBerry Data

On Wednesday, comScore released data from its latest MobiLens service, reporting key trends in the U.S. mobile phone industry during the three month average period ending July 2012.

And, all told, it was a bad stretch for BlackBerry.

More than 114 million people in the U.S. owned smartphones during the survey period, which is up 7 percent versus April. Android – once again – was the top smartphone platform with 52.2 percent market share (up 1.4 percentage points), while Apple’s share increased 2 percentage points to 33.4 percent.

RIM, however, placed a distant third with just a 9.5 percent share. This marks a new low for BlackBerry’s market share.

The study surveyed more than 30,000 U.S. mobile subscribers and, once again, found Samsung to be the top handset manufacturer overall with 25.6 percent market share.
