Comparing the latest figures to the Q2 average (ending in June), Apple’s gain was 0.5% points, while Android’s dip was 0.2% points.

Although Apple continues to hold the lead among smartphone manufacturers, Samsung has been enjoying some movement of late. Compared to the period ending in April, these latest figures show Samsung’s share up 2.1% points to 24.1%, still trailing Apple (40.4%) by a considerable margin of course.

HTC (-0.9% points to 8%), Motorola (-1.4% points to 6.9%) and LG (+0.1% points to 6.8%) are further behind.

Jumptap-Age-Distribution-Feature-Phone-Users-Aug2013Smartphone penetration stood at roughly 60% of the US mobile market in Q2, according to recent reports from comScore and Nielsen. That still leaves a sizable 40% chunk of the mobile market that hasn’t yet made the switch. So who is still using a feature phone? The demographics of the feature phone user are broken down in a new study [download page] released by Jumptap. As one might expect, the typical feature phone user tends to be older and come from a lower-income household.

Android Market Share Flattens In The U.S.

Business Insider Intelligence a new research and analysis service focused on mobile computing and the Internet. The product is currently in beta. For more information, and to sign up for a free 30-day trial, click here.

After an amazing two-year run, it looks like Android’s U.S. market share is beginning to flatten out, according to comScore’s April smartphone market share numbers. Android’s share dipped slightly from previous month, and has been losing momentum throughout 2012. Apple, meanwhile, has been the big winner so far this year.

As we argued in our special report on the platform wars, Apple has a developer network effect that gives them the edge in the mobile market share race. Consumers are ultimately drawn to phones with the most and best apps. Developers, in turn, follow the money, and currently make four times as much money on iOS.

Android continues to boom, RIM and Microsoft decline

Numbers, numbers, numbers. ComScore is back with a few more of them, this time covering the mobile market during a three-month average period ending in October. The results aren’t going to shock you: Android not only continues to dominate the market, it’s on the up-and-up. Out of 90 million smartphone users in the US, Android held strong at 463 percent (up from 41.9 between May and July). Apple bumped up a full percentage point, while RIM’s BlackBerry OS took the largest fall from 21.7 to 17.2 percent. What about Windows Phone? Microsoft’s mobile OS fell slightly from 5.7 to 5.4. Moving from mobile platforms to OEMs, Samsung was still the top vendor at 25.5 percent, though it didn’t grow or diminish that number. Rounding out the top five was LG (20.6 percent), Motorola (13.6), Apple (10.8) and RIM (6.6). If more numbers are what you crave, check out the full press release — as well as another chart — after the break.

Pew’s 2010 Mobile Access survey shows more people are doing more things on their phones

Pew's 2010 Mobile Access survey shows more people doing more things on their phones

As smartphones continue to extend their pocket-swelling domination of the mobile market, it should come as no surprise that people are less worried about talking and more concerned with doing other stuff on their handsets than ever before. But, still, if you want some hard numbers to make you feel better about making such conclusions, the Pew Research Center‘s 2010 Mobile Access survey has ’em. Compared to April of last year, 76% of people take pictures with their phones, up from 66%, and over a third play games, up from about a quarter. A third of people now play music on their phones, compared to 21% in 2009, but the biggest jump is in recording video: 34% vs. 19% before. Given the number of new movie-capturing phones released over the past year, it’s easy to see why. So, no shocking numbers here, but sadly there’s no indication of the one usage statistic we think might actually be falling: making calls.
