    On Thursday, comScore released the latest data from the comScore MobiLens service for the three month average period ending this past February. To conduct its most recent analysis, comScore surveyed 30,000 mobile subscribers in the United States.

    All told. 133.7 million people in the U.S. owned smartphones (57 percent mobile market penetration) by the close of February, which represents 8% growth just since November 2012. And it was Apple that evidently benefited the most from this growth spurt.

    Although Google's Android ranked as the top smartphone platform again with 51.7 percent market share, Android's lead fell by 2% during the three-month period analyzed. During the same three-month timeframe, however, Apple’s share increased 3.9 percentage points to 38.9 percent.

    Trailing well behind iOS and Android are BlackBerry with its 5.4 percent share, Microsoft (3.2 percent) and Symbian (0.5 percent).

    Android will gain market share in a few weeks with the S4 launch, then iOS with the next iPhone launch then Android again, then iOS again.

    Finally the truth comes out!

    Android is just so inferior to iOS in all aspects it's just plain sad!

    Thanks for a great report!
