ComScore reports Android on the rise, while RIM slips further0
Android has continued its ascent, going from 17% to 23.5%, which amounts to a 38% increase in only 3 months. Apple meanwhile has enjoyed a 3.3% rise from 23.8% to 24.6%. Even though iOS' market share is still growing, we imagine Steve Jobs is upset about Android being so close behind.
BlackBerry has declined even further, from 39.3% to 35.8% (an 8.9% decrease). RIM will need some fresh ideas if they want to regain some market share. Their BlackBerry OS 6 only seems to be slowing the bleeding.
Palm's webOS has declined from 4.9% to 3.9% (a 20% decrease). But we think that's more due to marketing and availability, rather than interest. The debut of the Pre 2 and Palm's other upcoming devices should give them a healthy bump in 2011.
Microsoft will be disappointed to see an 18% decline, from 11.8% to 9.7%. They're waiting to see an increase from Windows Phone 7, but that will take more time. Place your bets, folks. It's anyone's game in 2011.
