Despite the onslaught of rival smartphones like the iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone 7, Research in Motion will maintain the top spot when it comes to worldwide market share until 2015, according to a study from ABI Research.
The study found that RIM will lose market share by 2015. The research firm expects RIM’s BlackBerry to maintain 26% of the mobile operating system world market by 2015, matched by Google’s Android OS with 26%. Nokia’s Symbian OS will take 16%, Microsoft Windows OS 11% and Apple iOS 14%.
