updated 07:55 pm EDT, Thu May 6, 2010

Motorola slips to second place

Samsung has achieved the highest market share for cellphones distributed throughout the US in the first quarter of the year, according to recent data compiled by the research firm comScore. Motorola has fallen from the top of the list, losing 1.6 percent following lackluster sales in most handset categories aside from smartphones.

LG's presence has remained relatively steady, with the company's US market share shifting by only 0.1 percent from last year. The top three companies represent a surprisingly balanced number of mobile customers, with each handset maker falling somewhere between 21.8 and 21.9 percent of the market.

RIM showed the largest growth of any company in the top five, as BlackBerries have gained 1.3 percent from the previous quarter. Nokia has fallen from the fourth position as its market share slides by 0.9 percent.

Although Apple was not present in the top-five listing, the company reportedly ranks sixth with a five percent share of the domestic market, according to the Wall Street Journal. In comparison, RIM and Nokia each account for 8.3 percent of the market.
