According to a report released by comScore, Google Android's market share rose by 44% from February to May to 13%. That's a 4% increase in only three months. It still has a long way to go before it can overtake Apple, but if trends continue like the are, Google could take the crown in no time.

The same data from comScore shows that all of Google's competitors lost market share in that time period. Apple lost 1%, falling to 24.4%. We remind you that these were the months preceding the Apple iPhone 4 launch, so this drop was expected. Microsoft also lost market share, falling from 15.1% to 13.2%, which is the biggest of the bunch, but this was also expected, considering that the company is getting ready to launch Windows Mobile 7.

So it looks like Research in Motion is the only one really suffering here. They lost 0.4% market share and dropped to 41.7%. It will be interesting what the company will come up with to boost market share in the months to come.

The huge Android sales didn't only do good for Google, but it also boosted quarterly results of smartphone manufacturers. HTC's profits reached $268 million for the second quarter of this year.
