When it comes to smartphones in the U.S., Android and Apple keep growing at the expense of other mobile platforms like RIM, Windows Phone, and Nokia’s Symbian. The latest mobile subscriber numbers are out from comScore. Android leads the pack with 40 percent market share of U.S. smartphone subscribers as of June, 2011, up 5.4 percent from March, 2011.

Android is also widening the gap compared to Apple, which ended the period with 26.6 percent share. But Apple did grow 1.1 percent from March, whereas RIM (23.4 percent), Microsoft (5.8 percent), and Symbian (2.0 percent) all lost share.

Apple’s share did not budge compared to May, 2011, but Android gained 2 points in share in just one month. It definitely is showing momentum, according to this set of data. Expect to see this trend continue until a new iPhone comes out, perhaps in September. Raise your hands if you are waiting for it to come out before you buy your next phone.
