comScore reports: Palm losing ground, but don’t panic

comScore yesterday released their quarterly score (Feb-May 2010) for the US mobile subscriber marketshare, which shows that Palm have lost a small percentage of smartphone subscribers. However, the percentage decrease is nothing to be too alarmed or indeed shocked about; there was a 0.6% decline from February’s figure of 5.4%, to May’s figure of 4.8%.

The report does however state that most smartphone platforms are still continuing to gain subscribers, although just losing market share to Google’s Android platform – which is the only one to have increased market share percentage this quarter. Which, lets be honest, is pretty understandable considering the sheer amount of handsets manufacturers are putting out there for the platform.

Here is the table which shows the results, and a link to comScore’s Press Release
