dominant operating system in the market, with 52.10 percent share,

16.29 percent of the market. This represents the second month of
slipping share for Android, which held second place with18.86
percent share in October (compared with Java ME’s 12.81 percent

comScore reported in December that Android held 46.9 percent share
of the American smartphone market, trailed by Apple with 28.7
percent and RIM with 16.6 percent”
