RIM still leads as Android overtakes iOS in U.S. smartphone subscribers
Analytics company comScore has published its quarterly report on U.S. mobile subscribers for the three month period ending in November of 2010. What’s notable on the report? Google’s Android mobile operating system has surpassed Apple’s iOS in the number of U.S. based smartphone subscribers for the first time with 26% of the market — iOS has 25%. With iOS just in its rearview mirror, Android has only one adversary left... Research In Motion. RIM currently holds 33.5% of the US market, but has been hemorrhaging users and market share for several months here in the States as at one point RIM held over 90% of Verizon's Smartphone sells.
What are your thoughts for the outcome of 2011 as these 3 phone giants battle it out for top spot? Will iPhone dominate with a Verizon Network release? Or, will BlackBerry bounce back to a commanding lead with the release of the PlayBook and OS QNX?
