    RIM Continues to Decline in U.S. Mobile Subscriber Market Share



    Recent numbers put out by comScore shows that RIM continues a steady slow decline this year in the US Smartphone Market share. RIM has suffered a 1% drop from 25.7% to 24.7% since the last report given by comScore ending in April 2011. It will be interesting to see how the numbers change when Verizon starts to sell three of the upcoming BlackBerry Smartphones in their stores later this year. Let's hope RIM can climb back up on top with this rekindled Verizon partnership. comScore reports:

    76.8 million people in the U.S. owned smartphones during the three months ending in May 2011, up 11 percent from the preceding three month period. Google Android ranked as the top operating system with 38.1 percent of U.S. smartphone subscribers, up 5.1 percentage points. Apple strengthened its #2 position with 26.6 percent of the smartphone market, up 1.4 percentage points. RIM ranked third with 24.7 percent share, followed by Microsoft (5.8 percent) and Palm (2.4 percent).

    Well, when I was going to upgrade my phone to the Blackberry Bold last week, I called all over town to the Verizon stores and none of them had that phone. They had the Blackberry Curve 3G as the only Blackberry in their inventory in the stores. The rest of the phones have either the Android OS or Apple's iOS on them. I even went to one Verizon store over the weekend looking for a case for my new phone and all they had in their store were cases for the Android phones. They didn't have any cases for the Blackberry phones at all. Blackberry needs to be getting these new devices out into the stores to give these phones with the other OS's a run for their money.

    Personally, I have a hard time going away from the Blackberry smartphones because I love how this phone operates. I'd be really sad if they stopped making the Blackberry phones.
