ComScore’s three-month report on mobile subscribers (ending in November) is out.

The results: Samsung is the number one phone manufacturer in the U.S. and Android is still the top mobile OS.

Apple did see its smartphone market share grow a bit, from 27.3% to 28.7% in the last three months. But Google’s Android platform is still crushing it with 46.9% of the smartphone market in the U.S.

RIM’s BlackBerry OS continues to flail, dropping to 16.6% of the market from 19.7% three months ago. Windows Phone is treading water with about 5% of the market.

Here’s the chart:
