iPhone vs. BlackBerry

It’s been just 3 months since the iPhone took the top spot as not only the best selling smartphone, but, the best selling handset seeing it’s share shoot up to 30.1% of all smartphones in Q3 last year.  I remember some analyst saying that it was the beginning of the end for BlackBerry maker, Research in Motion.

Boy, what a difference can one quarter make.  According to an IDC report commissioned by The Industry Standard, RIM saw it’s market share increase from 40.4% to 47.5% in Q4.  Conversely, Apple saw it’s share drop from 30.1.% to 22.3%.  BlackBerry market share increased almost exactly by what iPhone share decreased.

I am not saying…  I’m just saying…
