8 out of every 10 smartphones bought by a Verizon customer are Android flavored11
Right now, 57% of Verizon's line-up is Android with 30% belonging to BlackBerry. The sales numbers show that RIM's products have slipped from that 93% peak to 19% as of last month. Motorola branded phones lead with 38% and HTC is third with 18%. In fourth place is Samsung with a 10% slice and Palm, with a meager 1% share, is fifth. Take a look at the graph below to see the impact that the Motorola DROID has had on BlackBerry sales at Verizon.
Once Windows Phone 7 handsets make their way to the carrier, it should be interesting to see what happens to this dynamic. And, if Shaw Wu is finally right and Verizon finally gets the Apple iPhone, the statistics will get shaken up some more.
