Market research company comScore
Apple’s share is up from 9.8 percent in August and 10.2 percent in September. During this time, which covers the iPhone 4S  launch, Apple’s growth was faster than its rivals. These estimates are for both non-smartphone  and smartphone U.S. subscribers.
Considering only smartphone platforms , Google’s Androd is leading with 46.9 percent compared to Apple’s 28.7 percent. But both smartphone platforms grew during the past few months compared to RIM and Microsoft . Smartphone marketshares of Symbian, RIM and Microsoft continue to decline during the past quarter.
comScore tracks installed user base instead of new device sales, which makes its data more reflective of real-world smartphone usage but less sensitive to rapidly shifting market tendencies than some other  studies.
