RIM's share of subscribers continues to plummet.
The number of U.S. smartphones running on Googles's Android operating system continued to grow in the three months ending April 2011, and outpaced the number installed with Apple's iOS platform.
According to data from comScore, 74.6 million people in the U.S. owned smartphones during that period, up 13 percent from the three-month period ending in January 2011. Android grew its market share by 5.2 percentage points in that time, reaching a total of 36.4 percent of U.S. smartphones. The number running Apple's iOS, meanwhile, grew by 1.3 percentage points, representing 26 percent of handsets.
BlackBerry manufacturer RIM saw its own share of devices decline further, dipping 4.7 percentage points to reach 25.7 percent of the market.
The data relates to smartphones only, and does not include tablet devices or iPods.
