FORTUNE -- Two new pieces of data for Wall Street to ignore as Apple's (AAPL) share price continues to fall:
According to a press release issued Wednesday by ComScore, Apple's iPhone moved ahead of Samsung and gained ground on Google's (GOOG) Android in the U.S. market during the three month period that ended in January.
Android is still the top smartphone platform with 52.3% U.S. share, but Apple has nearly caught up. It's share increased 3.5 percentage points to 37.8% in ComScore's reporting period while Android lost 1.3%.
