• Android Drops For First Time In U.S. Market As BlackBerry Begins To Heal


    The latest comScore numbers for U.S. smartphone subscribers may come as a shock to you. If you're a diehard Android fanboy, you may want to look away.

    comScore shows that from Oct 2012 - Jan 2013, Android dropped a 1.9 point marketshare. This is the first time that Android has dropped in the U.S. Market. And while Apple saw big gains at 3.5 points up, you can't help but wonder what else could have caused Android to drop? Could it be previously loyal BlackBerry users that went Android have been holding out on Android for the new BlackBerry 10 smartphones?

    Sure, BlackBerry did drop more than Android at minus 1.9 points, but that's slightly better than BlackBerry's Sept 2012 - Dec 2012 numbers of minus 2.0. This could be the start to BlackBerry's North American wound to begin healing.

    I'm sure many factors are in play here, but it's going to be interesting to say the least in the next couple months as we see BlackBerry's numbers increase with BlackBerry 10 launching on most major carriers this month in the USA. Look out iPhone and Android!
