Thursday Dec 17th 2009 by Staff

Though previous studies found the iPhone was outselling Windows Mobile devices and had a greater presence online, Apple's handset finally unseated Microsoft devices in terms of overall use in October, a new study has found.

Apple Insider: The latest survey of mobile operating system marketshare from research firm comScore found that the iPhone spiked to nearly 9 million U.S. users by the month of October, pushing it well past Microsoft's total of just over 7 million users. In July, the two companies were about even in total mobile OS market share.

comScore has found that about 36 million Americans own a smartphone, while another 196 million own a traditional cell phone. The numbers are meant to represent actual ownership and use of devices, rather than sales.
