comScore: Android’s market share continues to rapidly expand

With over 160,000 new Android activations every day, it comes as no surprise that Android continues to take market share away from other mobile platforms. The latest comScore report shows that Android now accounts for 13 percent of all smartphones in the U.S., a 4 percent jump since February.

Most smartphone platforms continue to gain subscribers as the overall smartphone market continues to grow, but Google’s Android was the only platform that saw its percentage of the market grow while others declined.

ComScore also reports that 49.1 million people in the U.S. owned smartphones, which translate into around 6.4 million Android handsets. With phones on every carrier and dozens of new launches coming in the second half of the year, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Android pass up Apple by the end of 2010.
