Google’s Android continues to grow mobile market share at the expense of RIM’s BlackBerry and Microsoft, according to the new comScore MobileLens report.

The Android operating system accounted for 52.2 percent of smartphone subscribers in the U.S. for the three month period ending in July 2012. That was up from 50.8 percent.

Apple’s share also gained, up two percent to 33.4 percent for the period.

Microsoft, meanwhile, continues to struggle. Its market share declined for the period, down 0.4 percent to 3.6 percent.

The report also found that 234 million Americans over the age of 13 now use mobile devices, and that Samsung remains the No. 1 maker of smartphones.
