Surprise surprise, the March smartphone market totals are in and you’ll never guess who continues to reign number one in the US market. Android is still top dog jumping almost four full points to 51% of new American smartphone buyers. Apple’s still riding its own wave jumping to 30.7% giving the two top platforms close to 80% marketshare. As seems to be the norm lately, Microsoft and RIM took their own hits dropping to 3.9% and 12.3% respectively. That’s a drop of 3.7% for RIM and 0.8% for Microsoft.
As of the current March totals, the American smartphone market now has 106 million smartphone owners, nine points higher than in December. Samsung and Apple are the only companies to make big moves in recent months with Samsung grabbing 26% of the market against Apple’s 14%. HTC, Motorola and LG continue to lose marketshare to Samsung, though HTC has high hopes on their “One” line as LG refocuses the company’s hopes on Android.
