Samsung number one Android handset maker in US

This time last year, Samsung only held a 9.2% market share in the Android handset market. Now however, they’ve tripled this number and have almost a third of the market share in th US for Android powered handsets. During Q3 of this year, Samsung saw their Android mobile market share grow to an impressive 32.1%.

Previously, Samsung used to produce 150+ handsets a year but, with less handsets made, they’ve been able to focus their efforts on their top phones, namely the Samsung Galaxy S, which has proved to be a huge success for both consumers and carriers. The Android platform on the Galaxy S, can be slightly adapted by network carriers, meaning more carriers are capable of supporting the handset.
