The Android revolution continues to roll overseas; BlackBerry crashes worldwide

The latest smartphone sales data for the three month period ending in May has been released by Kantar Worldpanel ComTech and it shows that BlackBerry is facing some very difficult times in the U.S.; at the end of May, the Canadian manufacturer saw its share of the U.S. smartphone market drop by an amazing 85% from the year earlier to just .7% of the market from a 3 month average of 4.6% the previous year...

yes.they should cut more than half of its current price.
their off contract price is highest in my country.
100$more than s4.

Not sure about the 'awesomeness', but definitely a day late. And thus a dollar short.

The biggest problem BlackBerry has is they have not given people a reason why they should buy their phone rather than an Android, WP8 or iOS. And they do not seem to be doing much advertising so many people do not even know BB10 exists.

"In Mexico, Windows Phone saw its market share triple over the year to 6.6%, led by the Nokia Lumia 505..."

This is the good news.

i doubt its the 505

"In Mexico, Windows Phone saw its market share triple over the year to 6.6%, led by the Nokia Lumia 505..."

And if you read carefully, it says "led by the Nokia Lumia 505", which means the Lumia 505 is the leader followed by the Lumia 520, 620 etc. and the Lumia 505 is an exclusive for Mexico's Telcel Network like mcshank said.

Read the Post and Possibly Click a link to the device before you constantly state that its wrong.
"The Nokia Lumia 505 will be an exclusive for Mexico's Telcel network."

It really is a sad lesson to learn in Business. I remember when I was growing up about 10 years ago everyone wanted a Blackberry, even our driver had to have one. Dear God, how times have changed. Blackberry was once King and now look at how tragically it has fallen. The same might hold true soon for Apple: Apple was once Queen and now its' eViL EmpiRe, too, has seen the beginnings of its' own demiSe. When will these companies learn??

Anyway, hail to His Majesty, the new little green Emporer, and God save The King!

...Your driver...? Like, a valet or something...?

...And "even" our driver? As in "God forbid he want something popular and/or fancy"...?

Spain is in an economic crisis. I imagine whatever is cheap is king, right now. Entry level probably rules the roost.

Time for BlackBerry to go Android. Or else face total elimination.
