Google's (GOOG) Android platform had another winning quarter, according to comScore's Mobilens. Android phones went from under 15% of the U.S. smartphone market in June to over 21% in September according to a report by ComScore. Google started out the year at 7%. Apple held steady at 24.3%, although July saw a spike with the launch of the iPhone 4.

RIM (RIMM) remained the overall leader, but its market share has dropped from over 40% in May to 37.3 percent in September. While it has a huge installed base, its monthly sales numbers have fallen behind Apple and Google.  The writing is on the wall.
