iPhone Tops T-Mobile USA's Smartphone Sales as Carrier Expansion Drives Growth for Apple 

MacRumors - Monday July 8, 2013

Blackberry drops from a barely existing 4.6% marketshare in 2012, to a totally irrelevant 0.7% this year.  Please Blackberry, just give it up.  It's embarrassing to watch.


Meanwhile Apple's iOS is up:
"Research firm Kantar Worldpanel has released a new report (via The Next Web) highlighting U.S. smartphone sales over the March-May period, finding that Apple's share of the market rose by 3.5 percentage points compared to the prior-year period."

  2. Sad watching RIM go down in flames after it gained so much market. It reminds me of Novell after having 87% market share then making bad decision after bad decision (yeah WorkPerfect will rock the future and IP is dead?!).
    I wonder if it was fat, dumb and happy syndrome, or "some idiot at a board meeting with some new ideas to venture into instead of focusing on what made them all the money in the first place. Man, "IF I WAS IN CHARGE"......
