comScore has released a new report on Mobile market share for quarter ending January 2010.

Motorola saw a disappointing quarter losing 1.2% share in the handset market, however, they were still market leaders with 22.9%, followed by LG with 21.7%, Samsung with 21.1% and Nokia with 9.1%. RIM, the manufactures of Blackberry saw the only modest increase in devices with a 1.4% increase over October.
In the Smartphone market, which consisted of 42.7 million users, RIM was the market leader with 43% market share, followed by Apple with 25.1% and Microsoft with 15.7%. Microsoft lost around 4% market share, which was promptly picked up by Google with their Android OS gaining over 4.3% market share
