The Android train keeps chugging along with the comScore showing a 5.1 point increase in total US Android use in the Feb-May Quarter putting the OS at 38.1% of the total US smartphone market.  Apple also gained, though less spectaculary with 1 percentage point improvement, coming in at 26.6%.  Android head Andy rubin said last month that Android activations had grown to over half a million a day worldwide.

For the other guys, it wasn’t a happy quarter.  RIM continues its slide down to a under quarter of all US smartphone purchases, while Microsoft and webOS risk being bundled into the “other” category as their marketshare continues to erode into almost nothing.
