    According to new numbers from comScore, the actual number of iPhone users has surpassed the number of all Windows Mobile users in the U.S. by a wide margin. RIM, however, still outnumbers both by a factor of two.

    Find out how to increase availability while reducing data center energy consumption
    Data from comScore shows that by the end of October, the number of active iPhone users in the U.S. reached 8.97 million. That's a pretty good number. Microsoft's installed, active user base stands at about 7.13 million. That means 1.84 million more people use the iPhone in the U.S. than all Windows Mobile devices combined.

    Keep in mind, Windows Mobile is available on dozens of different handsets from pretty much every wireless network operator in the U.S. I have to wonder how Microsoft -- and its manufacturer partners -- feel about these new statistics. comScore attributes this change directly to the availability of the iPhone 3GS, which went on sale in July.

    comScore has some numbers on the other smartphone platforms, too. RIM stands atop the smartphone user mountain when it comes to sheer numbers. BlackBerry addicts in the U.S. number about 14.96 million, which is more than double Microsoft's numbers and nearly double Apple's. I think RIM's current product portfolio is very strong, with devices such as the Storm2, Bold 9700, Tour, and 85XX series leading the way.

    What's really interesting is where webOS, Android and Symbian stack up. According to comScore, Palm's webOS has about 2.84 million users. That means sales of the Palm Pre and Pixi combined are contributing to that amount. That's already one-third the number of all Windows Mobile users.

    Unbelievably, comScore says there are just 1.04 million active users of Android. Can that be right? The number of Android handsets available in the U.S. has swelled to about 10 models, including the HTC G1, myTouch 3G, Hero and Eris; the Motorola CLIQ and DROID; and the Samsung Moment and Behold II. Are there really only a million people using Android handsets in the U.S. right now? I find that hard to believe.

    Symbian's presence surpasses Android, with about 1.3 million users in the U.S.

    Synbian's presence will dramatically reduced with Nokia pulling out of the states.

    Palm's webOS has about 2.84 million users Sorry I'm not buying it.

    This survey lost a lot of credibility when it delved into the Android numbers. Hasn't the Droid alone already surpassed the million-sold mark?

    Sorry but there is no way.

    Palm's sell-through for the last two quarters were 825k and 575k, as officially announced by the company. That includes all phones, not just webOS devices.

    If they've only sold 1.4 million phones total since the Pre came out, how could there possibly be 2.84 million webOS users?
    Treo 300 > Hitachi G1000 > PPC-6700 > PPC-6800 (Mogul) > PPC-6850 (Touch Pro) > Palm Pre & HTC EVO Optimus V

    yeah, I don't see Palm surpassing that many users until 1-2 years from now, at the current rate.

    As stated above, I think the numbers reflect PalmOS (Centro & Treo) as well as WebOS (Pre & Pixi).

    Android numbers don't look accurate though. Android has been around much longer than WebOS.

    but lets be honest, android started at tmobile. Tmobile really isn't the best network to deploy pdas on. Its a budget network

    I don't think comparing them this way is apples to apples:

    1. Palm sells their own units with PalmOS and WebOS, and also with WinMo.

    2. The WinMo and PalmOS numbers probably include the non-cell phone PDAs. Not sure how you compare them as Android and Blackberry OS are exclusive to cell phones.

    3. Android, WinMo, and Symbian can be on virtually any manufacturers phone. What does that mean to Palm, Apple, and BB that market their own devices?

    Meh, the article is fairly useless. Spitting out Simple numbers doesn't accurately dictate what's going on in the market.

    hmm
    hardly any truth, from the quarterly financial reports
    PALM sold 640 K ( up to 80% or 800K) ending August 2009 and
    another 600 K ( 90% of 780K) , thats about 1.2 millions. Give or take couple of hundred thousands its 1.5 million max.
    Where did they pull this 2.3 million number from ? thin air ? or from gluteus maximus?

    ANd that's combined Pre and PalmOS devices. By most accounts, the Pre is still looking for its 1,000,000th sale here in the US.
