Android tracking RIM, close to catching BlackBerry's market share

The tag team of Apple and Android appear to be set to take more share from RIM, according to comScore data.

Google's Android gains are nothing but pain for Research in Motion.

ComScore reported its December mobile market share figures Monday and we'll let the chart do the talking.

As you can see, RIM's market share losses appear to be largely attributed to Android (and Apple's iPhone to a lesser degree).

Now the Verizon iPhone may change that equation and thwart Android's assault somewhat. But overall, the tag team of Apple and Android appear to be set to take more share from RIM.

Other odds and ends from comScore's mobile tracking:

  • Samsung is taking share from Android rivals LG and Motorola.
  • 234 million Americans ages 13 and over used mobile devices in December.
  • Browser, app and social networking usage showed the leading growth gains for usage.
